This is a hands-on activity focusing on theoretical vs. experimental probability. Students will work in partners to complete the activity. Each pair of students will be given a small, brown bag filled with a handful of colored chips. The students will use the colored chips to find the theoretical probability and experimental probability of choosing specific colored chips. The students will then be asked to compare the outcome of the theoretical probability and experimental probability.
This activity can be used as a formative assessment activity or as a math center.
