Understanding probability using a deck of cardsThis activity is to familiarize your students with a standard deck of cards. Have your students get into groups of 2 or 3 and walk them through the beginning part. You can chose to have your students simplify each probability as a fraction or round to the thousandths place. Hopefully the students will see that all of the probabilities they find will always be between 0 and 1 inclusive.

Tree Diagrams and Compound ProbabilitiesGoal: The goal of this activity is for students to understand how to find probabilities of compound events by drawing tree diagrams and listing out sample spaces. Depending on the grade level, with or without replacement events can also be used and illustrated. Materials Needed: Each person in the group will need a copy of the worksheet.

Titanic & TwoWay Tables (Illustrative Mathematics)This is the first task in the series of three, which ask related questions, but use different levels of scaffolding. Also, the third task uses a more detailed version of the data table. The emphasis is on developing their understanding of conditional probability.

Yellow Starburst  Dan Meyer Three Act TaskThis lesson is designed to introduce students to probability using Dan Meyer's threeacttask, Yellow Starburst. After viewing a brief introductory video clip, students are asked to determine how many Starburst packs have exactly one yellow Starburst and how many packs will have exactly two yellow Starbursts.
