Description:

Read this article to see how one teacher and her students experienced probability in the context of a game situation. Lesson 1 of Skee-ball statistics was inspired by this article and displays successful learning in mathematics by integrating mathematical content into the real world of the student. This short read contains 3 probability activities (one being Beanbag Skee-Ball). I hope you will try these activities with your students!
