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