Our Probability Lesson Plan explores the concepts of probability, including the definition of probability and how to use fractions to determine event probability. Students are asked to complete an interactive tracking activity where they use coins, dice, and a spinner to test their hypotheses about probability. Students are also asked to discuss various actions that carry a low probability of success and individually complete practice problems in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define probability and determine the probability of events using fractions.
