Description:

In this activity, students pull red and green balls from each of three bins to see what the probability is of pulling out a green ball on their first try and pulling out two green balls in succession from the same bin. Students can run one trial at a time by themselves or they can simulate multiple trials at once. This activity allows students to explore experimental and 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.HSS-CP.A.2: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Understand that two events A and B are independent if the probability of A and B occurring together is the product of their probabilities, and use this characterization to determine if they are independent.

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

Find the conditional probability of A given B as the fraction of B's outcomes that also belong to A, and interpret the answer in terms of the model.
