Description:

In this activity, students spin a spinner or roll dice to obtain experimental data for their trials. The applet keeps track of their experiments by tallying the results in a table. This activity allows students to explore experimental probabilities in order to compare them with theoretical probabilities. This activity includes supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.

CCSS.Math.Content.7.SP.C.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.

CCSS.Math.Content.7.SP.C.6: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the chance process that produces it and observing its long-run relative frequency, and predict the approximate relative frequency given the probability.

CCSS.Math.Content.7.SP.C.7b: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Develop a probability model (which may not be uniform) by observing frequencies in data generated from a chance process.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-IC.A.2: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Decide if a specified model is consistent with results from a given data-generating process, e.g., using simulation.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-MD.A.3: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

(+) Develop a probability distribution for a random variable defined for a sample space in which theoretical probabilities can be calculated; find the expected value.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-MD.B.6: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

(+) Use probabilities to make fair decisions (e.g., drawing by lots, using a random number generator).
