Statistics and Probability
Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.
5. Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.

This collection of probability experiments can be completed with the use of one die. The purpose of each experiment is to compare theoretical and experimental probability through data collection. Each activity includes a PDF document with directions and materials and several activities also include a java applet.

Students can use this Shockwave applet to learn basic probability concepts and to apply fraction and decimal skills. In Level 1 a number of fish are seen in a tank and users express the probability of catching a red fish as a fraction. In Level 2 the required probability is given as a fraction, and users move more fish into the tank to produce this probability. Level 3 is similar to level 2 but involves a wider range of fractions and some decimals. The Key Ideas page provides background in basic probability concepts. A set of student activity printouts (Probability) is available for further practice.
