Description:

In this lesson, students practice decision-making skills leading to a better understanding of choice versus chance and building the foundation of mathematical probability. Students make theoretical arguments and have discussions about differences between choice and chance, then play a game and analyze the results in an experiment to show the difference. Discussion of the results can include how insurance rates are determined and why auto insurance is higher for teenagers.
