Probability Lesson 1

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:

  1. Have Handouts printed and ready to distribute
  2. Make sure that I have dice
  3. Have class split into groups prior to lesson starting

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
