Geometric Probability  Activity A
Randomly throw darts at a target and see what percent are "hits." Vary the size of the target and repeat the experiment. Study … the relationship between the area of the target and the percent of darts that strike it

Geometric Probability  Activity B
Randomly throw darts at a target and see what percent are "hits." Vary the size of the target and repeat the experiment. Study … the relationship between the area of the target and the percent of darts that strike it.

Independent and Dependent Events
Compare the theoretical and experimental probabilities of drawing colored marbles from a bag. Record results of successive draws to find … the experimental probability. Perform the drawings with replacement of the marbles to study independent events, or without replacement to explore dependent events.

Permutations and Combinations
Experiment with permutations and combinations of a number of letters represented by letter tiles selected at random from a box. Count … the permutations and combinations using a dynamic tree diagram, a dynamic list of permutations, and a dynamic computation by the counting principle.

Probability Simulations
Experiment with spinners and compare the experimental probability of particular outcomes to the theoretical probability. Select the number … of spinners, the number of sections on a spinner, and a favorable outcome of a spin. Then tally the number of favorable outcomes.
