As a class, we will continue our exploration of mathematics by beginning to learn about probability. At the conclusion of the lesson, students will be able to explore probability and list the possible outcomes of an event to occur by using fractions.
Students will then be required to copy down the definitions of the following words:
Probability
Event
Outcome
Finally, students will receive a list of the four steps to understanding probability (the steps will also be written on a chart in front of the students.)
Teacher will then restate the rules with the students while modeling examples for each step using a spinner, dice and coins (students will be drawing upon their prior knowledge for some examples.)
Students who finish the worksheet early can begin to work on their follow-up activity. Students will be required to create their own probability question and answer worksheet by using the information they learned from the lesson.
Students will be required to write a letter to a 3rd grade student explaining to them what probability is and what they have learned about probability. All letters must be typed!
