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.

Contingency Table ActivityGoal: The goal of this activity is to read a table and gather data from it and use it to create a contingency table. Students will then be asked a series of questions discussing what they see when they create a contingency table and what are some of the benefits with using one.

Central Tendency and Measures of DispersionGoal: The goal of this activity is to allow students the ability to practice data collection and find measures of central tendency and dispersion. Wrap up questions will also allow for an insight into how each of these calculations are related to one another. Materials needed: 12 small bags of M & Mâ€™s (they can be the fun size or regular packs), calculator and the M & M worksheet and answer sheet.

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.

Talking TwoWay TablesWhen analysis of categorical data is concerned with more than one variable, a twoway table (also known as a contingency table) can be used. These tables provide a foundation for statistical inference, where statistical tests question the relationship between the variables based on the data observed. This activity begins to explore statistical inference and testing.
