#### Let's Flip a Coin

In this probability activity, students use a TI graphing calculator to simulate flipping a coin and compare their results (experimental probability) to the expected results (theoretical probability). The five page activity contains...

#### Flipping a Coin

Repeatedly flipping coins can lead to unexpected results in data. Make predictions and test them with a trial experiment. Resource calls for a calculator to do the trials, but actually flipping coins adds fun and sharpens fine motor...

Lesson Planet

#### Probability Worksheets

Flipping a coin and spinning a spinner helps learners reason through the probability of specific events happening in this first of four probability worksheets. Learners predict the outcome when a coin is flipped twenty times and record...

Lesson Planet

#### Heads or Tails

Heads! A great way to practice probability is to flip a coin in class. The provided data allows your mathematicians to predict the probability of heads in ten coin flips. Bring coins to class and allow your own trial of heads or tails....

Lesson Planet

#### Monster Genetics Lab

Harness young scientists' knowledge of genetics with an engaging science activity. Students start by flipping a coin to determine the genotypes and phenotypes of two parent monsters, before using Punnett squares to determine the...

#### The Difference Between Theoretical Probabilities and Estimated Probabilities

Flip a coin to determine whether the probability of heads is one-half. Pupils use simulated data to find the experimental probability of flipping a coin. Participants compare the long run relative frequency with the known theoretical...

Lesson Planet

#### Processes on Complex Networks

Introduces your class to random processes in networks with an activity that uses information about disease spread using the susceptible, infectious, resistant (SIR) model. Participants determine whether a susceptible person becomes...

Lesson Planet

#### The Carbon Cycle

There is 30 percent more carbon in the atmosphere today than there was 150 years ago. The first lesson in the four-part series teaches classes about the carbon cycle. Over two to three days, classes make a model of the cycle, add missing...

Lesson Planet

#### Penney's Game

Stack the odds in your favor. Scholars watch a video in the Numberphile Coins series that introduces a game where contestants pick a sequence of three coin flips (such as HHT) and keep flipping a coin until that sequence appears. The...

Lesson Planet

#### Outcomes of Coin Tosses

Flip a coin: heads, use the resource; tails, use the resource. The fourth of six installments of the Statistics & Probability unit looks at coin tosses and probability. The class conducts an experiment and sees that the outcomes of...

Lesson Planet

#### Empowered Decision Making

There are many ways to make decision: act, react, flip a coin. Some ways are healthy and some are not. Learn about the different styles. Learn how to use effective decision-making skills to get desirable results. Learn to take...

Lesson Planet

#### Decisions, Decisions!

How does one go about making a decision? Go with the flow, flip a coin? How about rock, paper, scissors? What things should be taken into consideration when making a decision? Does one need to consider benefits and/or consequences? A...

#### The Face Lab - An Introduction to Genetics

Simulate the passing of genetic traits with this worksheet. Working with a partner, pupils flip a coin to determine characteristics: gender, face shape, chin features, hair patterns and color, eye spacing, and more. A data chart is...

Lesson Planet

#### Probability of Chance Events - Guided Lesson

Show learners that their choices can change based on probability. The lesson discusses the idea of theoretical and experimental probability when choosing items or flipping a coin. Use the page with the additional resources provided for a...

Lesson Planet

#### What is a Random Walk?

Take a walk down random lane. Scholars learn about random walks, where a random process like flipping a coin determines the next move of the walk. The video explains the difference between recurrent and transient walks based on whether a...

Lesson Planet

#### How Random is a Coin Toss?

It turns out that coin tosses might not be random after all. A math professor explains the results of his work in a video from the Numberphile Coins series. Flipping a coin results in the original state (heads or tails) 51 percent of the...

#### Probability Games and Activities, Unit 10

Looking for tangible ways to practice probability with your class? Through 4 activities, students practice with experimental probability, using math to make educated guesses, then testing it through physically completing the experiment....

Lesson Planet

#### Excel Lesson Plan Coin Statistics

Second graders determine the difference between making a prediction and determining actual information. They design a spreadsheet for a coin flipping activity on which they include their predictions and what actual happens when they flip...

Lesson Planet

#### Flip A Coin

Fifth graders explore the effects of genetics in determining personal characteristics. They randomly flip coins and the combinations of heads and tails indicate different genetic traits. They make a composite drawing of a person with...

Lesson Planet

#### Probability - Spin the Spinner

Learners solve and complete 20 various types of multiple choice problems. First, they use a spinner to find the probability for each number. Then, everyone finds the sample space when flipping a coin. They also determine the probability...

Lesson Planet

#### Heads or Tails

Seventh graders compare experimental and theoretical probabilities. In this comparing experimental and theoretical probabilities lesson, 7th graders discuss the theoretical probability of flipping a coin. Students flip a coin 25 times...
