Short and sweet with pictures! :)
We used this product by Lisa Tilmon to talk about theoretical and experimental probability. Students included the results in their notebooks on page 17.
Students then completed this simulation investigation made by yours truly. Download your copy for free!
They then completed their own simulations for homework on page 18 in their notebook. In case it's hard to read, I printed thin pieces of paper to be taped in so they didn't have to copy anything down, risk missing a key piece, or waste valuable class time.
The paper says: (1) Describe a real-life event that you are curious about. (2) Create a simulation to model that event. (3) Perform your simulation 15 times and record the data in a table. (4) Describe what your data tells you about your real-life event.
