Probability Lesson

In math class, we are working on using the following words to describe probabilities: CERTAIN, LIKELY, UNLIKELY, IMPOSSIBLE.  This is a difficult concept for some of the students to grasp.  During board or card games, it would help your child better understand the ideas by stopping every once in a while to ask what the chances of an event happening next would be.  For example, when rolling a die, ask "What are the chances you will roll a six?" or "What are the chances you will roll less than a 3?"

Here is a site with a quick lesson and some practice to help.


Have a good night.
