This is an around the world activity also known as a scavenger hunt. Students love being able to get out of their desks and move around the room! There are a total of 12 problems that require the students to calculate the probability of an event given the number of trials, the number of successes, and the probability of success. There are 4 word problems and 8 problems where x, n, and p are explicitly given. I also have a product that is all word problems. Check out the link below.
How the Activity Works:
•Each page is printed and put up around the room (not in order).
•Students can start at any location.
•The top half of the sheet is the answer to a different problem and the bottom half is the problem that they should work on.
•After they calculate their answer, they find the page around the room that has the answer and go there for their next problem, then repeat.
•Students should write down their work and answer for each problem to turn in.
•Students should end up at the problem that they started on.
