# CCSS.Math.Content.7.SP.C.5 - Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.

1. Adjustable Spinner - Students can create a game spinner with variable sized sectors to look at experimental and theoretical probabilities.
2. Adjustable Spinner - Change the number of sectors and increase or decrease their size to create any type of spinner. Then, conduct a probability experiment by spinning the spinner many times. How does the experimental probability compare with the theoretical probability
3. Analyzing game probabilities - Multiple-choice quiz [5 problems]
4. Chances Are - Predict the likelihood of events using a circle graph with percentages as a model
5. Coin Flipping page - Flip up to 100 coins and see the total number of heads and tails. Excellent for teaching about probability.
6. Interactive Probability Tutorial - Sample Spaces and Events
7. Interactive Probability Tutorial - Estimated Probability
8. Interactive Probability Tutorial - Empirical Probability
9. Interactive Probability Tutorial - Abstract Probability
10. Interactive Probability Tutorial - Conditional Probability and Independence
11. Lions and Tigers - Predict the likelihood of a simple event (rolling a die) as a fraction
12. 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.
13. Probability - Five question multiple-choice quiz from Glencoe Math
14. Probability Theory: The Layman's Guide to Probability - An in-depth but easily readable guide on probability theory, covering various aspects of the theory with a bias to gambling games and strategies. Includes working examples in an excel spreadsheet.
15. Two Colors - Students choose between three boxes and choose one marble from the box to look at conditional probabilities.
16. 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.
17. What are Your Chances - What many people refer to as 'good luck' can actually be explained by a little knowledge about probability and statistics. This dice game allows you to see how increasing or decreasing the number of dice rolls effects an outcome.
