Compare theoretical and experimental probability with coin tosses.
This video gives more detail about the mathematical principles presented in Theoretical and Experimental Coin Tosses.
This video shows how to work step-by-step through one or more of the examples in Theoretical and Experimental Coin Tosses.
This lesson plan covers Using Technology to Find Probability Distributions, Flipping a Coin and includes Teaching Tips, Common Errors, Differentiated Instruction, Enrichment, and Problem Solving.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Theoretical and Experimental Coin Tosses.
To activate prior knowledge, make personal connections, reflect on key concepts, encourage critical thinking, and assess student knowledge on the topic prior to reading using a Quickwrite.
To organize ideas, increase comprehension, synthesize learning, demonstrate understanding of key concepts, and reinforce vocabulary using a Quickwrite.
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.
