Currently, our sixth graders are learning about simple and complex probability. Currently, students are working through skill-building problems and investigations with our math coach, but seem to be craving something more. So, in an effort to encourage them to work through problems, we’ve compiled a list of games that they can play as a reward for completing problems.
Check out these 3 great probability games below:
- Probability Fair
Players win tickets by answering probability questions based on a spinner with different colors. With these tickets, they can play different fair games to win even more tickets!
- Probability Pond
Players choose from a variety of types of activities, including describing chances, finding probabilities, and showing probabilities. Games involve choosing, matching or adjusting fireflies of different colors.
- Ball Picking Machine
Players must determine the probabilities of a certain color of ball being chosen and adjust the probabilities on a line-graph.
