LESSON TITLE: Probability of “Making a Hoop”

CURRICULUM AREA: Math 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 5.4

GRADE LEVEL: 6th, 7th, 8th

ESSENTIAL QUESTION:

What is the difference between theoretical and experimental probability?

ACTIVITY SUMMARY:

Students will be divided into 12 equal groups with each group representing one of the ACC schools. Students will participate in an activity to illustrate experimental and theoretical probability.

ACTIVATING STRATEGIES:

Whole class determines probability by writing a ratio with shots hit divided by total. Teacher asks students probability if she takes 10 more shots. (theoretical probability) Teachers shoots 10 times. Record data. (experimental probability)

METHOD:

  • 1)

    Students are grouped.

  • 2)

    Each student shoots 10 times.

  • 3)

    Record data.

  • 4)

    Each Student shoots 10 more times.

  • 5)

    Compare theoretical with experimental probability.

SUMMARY STRATEGIES:

Teacher will pose higher order questions. Review theoretical and experimental probability. Predictions are posted.

RESOURCES:

Nerf ball (1 per group). Data table per person.

RE-TEACHING AND ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES:

1. Students can gather free throw data and 3 point shot data of ACC player(s) and predict game performance for a particular game based on past performance. Record data from game and compare to prediction.
