Grade(s) 7 resources related to the following standard:
Statistics and Probability
Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.
7. Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to observed frequencies; if the agreement is not good, explain possible sources of the discrepancy.
b. Develop a probability model (which may not be uniform) by observing frequencies in data generated from a chance process. For example, find the approximate probability that a spinning penny will land heads up or that a tossed paper cup will land open-end down. Do the outcomes for the spinning penny appear to be equally likely based on the observed frequencies?

This collection of probability experiments can be completed with one pair of dice. The purpose of each experiment is to determine the theoretical and/or experimental probability of specific outcomes. Each activity includes a PDF document with directions and materials and several also include a java applet.

This probability activity guides students to discover the law of large numbers by having them consider why flipping a coin multiple times does not always produce equal results. The activity includes a 3 minute video featuring Bianca from Cyberchase, a document for data collection, and two assessment options (rtf format).
