Have you ever asked, “What are the chances?” If you have, you were asking a probability question. It could’ve been about a math problem, or even weather! Today, however, we are only discussing math.
Click here to visit BrainPop (http://www.brainpop.com/math/probability/).
I want you to do all of the activities EXCEPT for Mean Median Mode and Range.
What are the odds?
Now that you have been on BrainPop, I have several other websites I want you to visit. You must visit them in order that they are listed! They are each on their own slide with instructions. If you have any questions, raise your hand.
This website offers simulations, or an act that is like something you may do. Please try each one.
