This is an exploratory experiment/activity about basic probability. This project infuses the social justice issue of "Stop and Frisk" into probability. By the end of the project, students will be able to:
Articulate the differences between theoretical and experimental probability through prediction and experimentation.
Articulate the differences between independent and dependent events.
Compare and contrast 3 different sets of data (theoretical, experimental, and real life percentages), interpreting their meaning for social issues.
Construct an argument in support or opposition of social issues using statistics.
I created a detailed answer key which can be downloaded separately.
