Probability - CCSS 8.SP.A.1, 8.SP.A.2, 8.SP.A.3


Links verified on 6/20/2014


  1. Adjustable Spinner - Students can create a game spinner with variable sized sectors to look at experimental and theoretical probabilities.
  2. Analyzing Game Probabilities - Take a five question multiple choice quiz. Self-checking.
  3. Chances - What many people refer to as 'good luck' can actually be explained by a little knowledge about probability and statistics. Our dice game allows you to see how increasing or decreasing the number of dice rolls effects an outcome.
  4. Coin Flip - This coin flipper builds a column graph one flip at time [you may need to agree for the browser to run active-X controls].
  5. Coin Toss - Toss enough coins to make a prediction about probability (maximum number of tosses 1000, but you can keep tossing to get a larger data set).
  6. Data Picking - students collect data, enter tally marks or numbers and then select which graph is appropriate This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  7. Ken White's Coin Flipping Page - Decide which kind of coin to flip (penny or dime) and how many flips you want to see.
  8. Leap Frog - Design an experiment to answer a question, collect information, and interpret the results using charts.
  9. Lions and Tigers - Predict the likelihood of a simple event (rolling a die) as a fraction.
  10. Marbles - Students learn about sampling with and without replacement by modeling drawing marbles from a bag. Parameters: Number and color of marbles in the bag, replacement rule.
  11. Me Too Probability - Use a tree diagram to display possible outcomes of who will come to the party.
  12. On Stage Probability - Use tree diagrams to display the possible outcomes of casting a play.
  13. Probability - Take a five question multiple choice quiz. Self-checking.
  14. Probability - The BAMZOOKi Zooks are under starter's orders. Get ready to race! Interactive game from BBC
  15. Random Ball-Picking Machine - Experiment with a random generator at a BBC site to collect data to make decisions about probability. After you finish working through the ball-picking activity.
  16. Spinner - Students can create a game spinner with one to twelve sectors to look at experimental and theoretical probabilities. Parameters: Number of sectors, number of trials.
  17. Spy Guys Interactive - Probability - Watch the video and respond at various places Lesson 19 . This video includes sections which ask students to inpur responses
  18. Two Colors - Students choose between three boxes and choose one marble from the box to look at conditional probabilities.
  19. Understanding Experimental Probability - Experiment with experimental probability using a fixed size section spinner, a variable section spinner, 2 regular 6-sided number cubes or design your own number cubes.
  20. Who Will Probably Come to the Party? - Use problem-solving steps and a tree diagram to display possible outcomes and make predictions.
