Students carry out a probability experiment to explore the relationship between theoretical and experimental probability. Throughout the course of the lesson students are challenged to assign a set of events given fixed probabilities, design an experiment to test their accuracy and discuss their findings using bias.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to determine a set of overlapping events given probabilities.
- Most students should be able to design an experiment to compare theoretical and experimental probabilities.
- Some students should be able to compare theoretical and experimental probabilities and understand the concept of relative frequency.
