One and One Equals Win

#### Activity Overview

This lesson involves using proportionality and a basic understanding of probability to make and test conjectures about the results of experiments and simulations.

#### Objectives

• Students will compare experimental probability with theoretical probability.
• Students will determine the probability of given events using an area model.

#### Vocabulary

• experimental probability
• theoretical probability
• equally likely
• random event

#### About the Lesson

This lesson involves using proportionality and a basic understanding of probability to make and test conjectures about the results of experiments and simulations.
As a result, students will:

• Use spinners, area models, and a basketball simulation to predict the results of real world events.
