Geometric Distributions and the Birthday Paradox: Crash Course Statistics #16Lesson Planet
10 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
It's your birthday! But, maybe other people's, too. An illuminating video describes how to apply geometric probability distributions in real-world situations. It then reveals how probability helps explain the birthday paradox.
Experimental ProbabilityLesson Planet
7th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Spin into a dicey experiment. Pupils use a spinner or a pair of dice to determine the experimental probabilities of each outcome. The interactive allows for either, one, five, or ten consecutive experiments. Using the applet, learners...
Measurement of Probability: Basketball ThrowLesson Planet
6th - 9th CCSS: Designed
Future mathematicians use an interactive to see how changing the size of a basketball court and the size of a region in the court affects the probability that a ball will randomly fall within the specified region. No calculations are...
Geometric Probability: DartboardLesson Planet
6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Get your class on target with probability using an exciting resource. The interactive presents three square dartboards with different target areas, which are combinations of square units. Pupils determine the probabilities of randomly...
Buffon's Needle An Analysis and SimulationLesson Planet
6th - 8th
If you dropped a needle on a lined sheet of paper what is the probability that the needle will cross one of the lines on the page? Surprise your class with how calculating this probability can approximate pi. This question is known as...
