Data Analysis and Probability:
Understand and apply basic concepts of probability
Lesson  (...)
Lesson: Students learn about the concepts and applications of chaos.

Lesson: Introduces students to concepts that lead to probability.

Lesson: Introduces students to simple probability concepts.

Lesson: Students learn about how probability can be represented using geometry.

Lesson: Considers probability concepts on the basis of statistics in professional sports.

Activity  (...)
Activity: Create a game spinner with variable sized sectors to look at experimental and theoretical probabilities. Parameters: Sizes of sectors, number of sectors, number of trials.

Activity: Simulation of a coin toss allowing the user to input the number of flips. Toss results can be viewed as a list of individual outcomes, ratios, or table.

Activity: Compare theoretical and experimental probabilities, using dice, cards, spinners, or coin tosses. Three different probabilities can be compared at once. Parameters: Type of probabilities, number of trials.

Activity: Experiment with the outcome distribution for a roll of two dice by simulating a dice throwing game. Parameters: Which player wins with which total rolled.

Activity: Experiment with probability using a fixed size section spinner, a variable section spinner, two regular 6-sided dice or customized dice.

Activity: Learn about sampling with and without replacement by randomly drawing marbles from a bag. Parameters: Number and color of marbles in the bag, replacement rule.

Activity: Simulate a game where two players each roll a die, and the lucky player moves one step to the finish. Parameters: what rolls win and how many steps to the finish line.

Activity: Simulate a game where "N" players roll two dice, and the lucky player has an advantage for reaching the finish. Parameters: the number of players, number of trials and length of the race.

Activity: Sort colored shapes into a Venn diagram based on various characteristics. Venn Diagram Shape Sorter is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Classify various objects into categories in a Venn Diagram. Learn how categories in Venn Diagrams work. Venn Diagrams is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.
