Practice Theoretical and Experimental Spinners questions
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Theoretical and Experimental Spinners.
To stress understanding of a concept by summarizing the main idea and applying that understanding to create visual aids and generate questions and comments using a Concept Matrix.
To reinforce and increase concept comprehension, and to analyze similarities and differences between topics using a Two Column Table.
Students will explore the concepts of theoretical and experimental probability through an activity where they shoot 3-pointers in basketball. Then students will compare their experimental probability to that of an NBA player.

As you spin the spinner at this site, the activity records the results! You can even customize your spinner for more interesting results. Do the results match your expectations? How do they change if you spin 5 times versus 25 times?
An interactive simulation of a spinner used to conduct probability experiments. Learn about probability in the process!
These flashcards help you study important terms and vocabulary from Probability Distribution, Binomial Distributions and Probability, and Multinomial Distributions.
