# Trick-Or-Treat Candy Probabilities

##### This Trick-Or-Treat Candy Probabilities worksheet also includes:

Class members satisfy their sweet tooth with a Halloween-themed, candy probability worksheet. Using images of candy pieces that represent data, young mathematicians find the probability of getting different pieces of candy while trick-or-treating.

##### Instructional Ideas

• Challenge class members to convert fractional probabilities into percents
• Create an experimental probability situation that allows class members to compare the results from one of the worksheets (theoretical probability) to a real trial of pulling candy out of a bag
##### Classroom Considerations

• The resource contains theoretical probability type problems versus experimental probability
• Students should have background knowledge and experience working with fractions and finding probabilities and ratios
• Consider numbering each question before copying a class set, and provide scrap paper for those that need it
##### Pros

• Comes with 10 different versions and their corresponding answer keys
##### Cons

• The questions are not numbered
