Use this activity to reinforce probabilities with your students!
In this project, students will analyze a game that has an aspect of chance - Deal or No Deal, Twister, Yahtzee, Monopoly - and calculate probabilities off of that game.
They will then create their own game! They will create rules for a game that has an aspect of luck to the game.
I usually provide 2-3 in class days to work on these first two parts.
Part 3 is completed when the students actually get to play their games! They must complete the first page of part 3 when they play their game and the second when they are playing another student's game. I typically divide the class into groups of 5 to get through the games in two class periods.
I can also provide an editable Google Docs version if you would like!
