Accelerated Math ~ Mrs. Fisher

  • Last week students created Carnival Games and determined their theoretical probability of winning. This week students will present their games and collect data to calculate the experimental probability of winning their games.

  • Students will then write up their findings and explain how similar or different their theoretical and experimental probabilities were, and reflect on the process of data collection and analysis.

  • This project will yield three grades: one summative grade for the write up, and two formative grades for the game and their participation (participation will be based on teacher observation throughout the project as well as team member scoring).
