Description:

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to develop concepts and skills with fractions, decimals, and percentages in the context of shooting baskets. Students take turns tossing a ball into a wastebasket a number of times determined by a random card draw, while other students keep track of the number of shots made. The class processes the data by creating fractions and converting them into decimals and percentages, and then uses them to analyze and interpret the results.
