Lesson Description: Super Spinners is a hands-on activity that requires students to analyze three themed spinners in order to compare the theoretical probability of each spinner outcome with the experimental probability from their trials. Students then collect and analyze data from their entire class (and possibly multiple classes) to draw conclusions about the accuracy of experimental probability data as the number of trials increases.

Math Content: Theoretical (or Mathematical) Probability, Experimental Probability, Collecting Data, Analyzing Data, Fractions, Percents, Frequency Tables, Using Mathematical Charts, and Drawing Conclusions Based Upon Collected Data

Time Required: 1-2 Class Periods

Super Spinners Probability Activity includes:
3 Super Spinners student worksheets
3 Super Spinners student worksheet Answer Keys
1 Super Spinners Experimental Probability Data worksheet
2 Super Spinners Teacher Tips pages
1 Super Spinners Cover Sheet
10 pages in all!

Materials Needed: Paper Clips

Suggested Grade Level: 5th-8th

Teacher Testimonial: Super Spinners is an enjoyable, active way for students to internalize the concepts of Theoretical and Experimental Probability. The themed spinners allow students to spin for spiders, sports figures, and cell phones instead of less exciting outcomes like numbers or colors. As students collect the whole class data and the complete data from multiple classrooms they should clearly see that the Experimental Probability tends to move closer and closer to the Theoretical Probability as the number of trials increases.

Enjoy your activity!!
