Description:

This series of three computer based lesson plans requires students to create specific virtual spinners and complete numerous trials in order to determine the difference between theoretical and experimental probability. By completing a large number of trials students discover the law of large numbers. In the third activity students create their own spinner and determine the likelihood of each event. The lesson plan includes a link to the Virtual Spinner which is cataloged separately. All worksheets are included for these activities.
