#### Understand the Law of Large Numbers by Comparing Experimental Results to the Theoretical Probability

If we flip four tails in a row, does that mean all coin flips will be tails? With the law of large numbers, your mathematicians will learn that with more trials their experimental probability will get closer to the theoretical...

Lesson Planet

#### Compare Experimental and Theoretical Probability to Interpret Data

Once your learners can calculate experimental and theoretical probability, teach them how to compare their results with this video. Review the difference between each probability and how to set up the ratio from each event. Use the prior...

#### Theoretical Probability Activity

If you keep rolling a die, you'll roll a five exactly one-sixth of the time—right? A probability lesson prompts young mathematicians to roll a die 100 times and use the data to calculate empirical probabilities. They then compare these...

EngageNY

#### 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

#### Theoretical Probability

In this theoretical probability worksheet, students solve 6 fill in the blank problems based on a game board with 9 squares numbered 2-10. Students determine the probability of certain possible outcomes or the theoretical probability...

Lesson Planet

#### Rolling Twice

Rolling dice is the best way to show your learners how probability comes in to play. Although this lesson does not specify an activity, your mathematicians can try this probability with real dice to calculate their experimental...
