Clip to ScrapBook #2

Place different colored unifix cubes in a lunch bag and ask the probability of pulling each color. Make predictions. Then pull somwhere around 40 times and see if the results increase porportionally. Graph it. Teach them to write it as a ratio. Give them each a dice and have them figure out the probability of rolling each number, even numbers, odd numbers, prime and composite numbers. Seperate the class into two groups, those that can whistle and those that can't. See if the probability is the same for a another class of the same size. Those are some things I did last week.
