Probability Experiments

posted Jun 2, 2013, 3:58 PM by Patrick Johnson

In math, students have been learning to describe the likeliness of an event occurring using probability language (impossible, unlikely, likely, certain).

Students have been conducting probability experiment. The below experiment shows the results of rolling and adding together two number cubes. After the experiment students concluded:
  • It was impossible to roll a 1 because the lowest number you can roll with 2 number cubes was 2.
  • It was unlikely to roll a 12 or a 2 because there was only 1 way to roll the number cubes with that outcome.
  • It was likely to roll and 6 because there were several ways to roll the number cubes to get that outcome.

Today students learned to make inferences from pictures. They made observations about what they saw in the picture, then used those clues and their own knowledge to make a guess (using words like maybe and I think) as to what creature was in the picture.
