Probability
Date: October 30

Subject: Math 
Grade Level: 7

Lesson Time: 60 
Theme of the Lesson Plan: Teach basic vocabulary and concepts of probability. Practise using 3 different activities
Brief Summary of the Lesson Plan: Introduce theme. Have a volunteer come up and flip a coin. Work through 3 activities and have each group go through stations at least once to practise theoretical and experimental probability. Work on work sheet at end of class.
Curriculum Outcome(s):
 P. 7.3. Demonstrate an understanding of theoretical and experimental probabilities for two independent events where the combined sample space has 36 or fewer elements. [C, ME, PS R, T]
Curriculum Indicator(s):
 Multiple Indicators
Lesson Preparation:
 Have Handouts printed and ready to distribute
 Make sure that I have dice
 Have class split into groups prior to lesson starting

Lesson Break Down  Instructional Strategies:

Classroom Management:  Time:  Adaptive Dimension & Additional Activities:

Set:
o Ask students if they can name scenarios where probability is used. Sports, weather.

o Direct instruction 
o Countdown from 5 
5min 
o Have additional worksheets if students finish early o Students can read if they are done early 
Development:
o Give a definition of probability o Explain how probability is measured (percent, ratio, fraction) o Explain the difference between theoretical and experimental probability. (Have a student come up and flip the coin for experiment) o Have students work in groups and complete the three activities o After 7 minutes or so have them switch and try another experiment (if there is not looking like there will be enough time then adjust activities

o Direct instruction o Direct instruction o Game based activity 
o Circulate during activity
