Lesson Plan: Experimental Probability Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to interpret a data set by finding and evaluating the experimental probability.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • understand that experiments can be used to estimate the probability of an event occurring,
  • recall that each repetition of an event within an experiment is known as a “trial,”
  • recall that the result of an experiment is known as an “outcome,”
  • calculate the experimental probability of an event occurring using the results from a number of trials.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • converting between fractions, decimals, and percents.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • the probability of the complement of an event,
  • mutually exclusive events,
  • the independence of events,
  • Venn diagrams,
  • tree diagrams.
