Description

Student Learning Objectives:

  • Distinguish between Theoretical and Experimental Probability
  • Find the probability of drawing a certain card from a deck of cards.
  • Document experimental probability results into iSense Dataset
  • Compare experimental probability with theoretical probability
  • Conclude that the more trials you complete, the closer to the theoretical probability your experimental probability should be.


PREDICT: (Theoretical Probability)

What is the probability that you will draw a King from a deck of cards?

What is the probability of drawing a face card from a deck of cards?

What is the probability of choosing any King that is red in suit from the deck of cards?

What is the probability of drawing a red face card from a deck of cards?


PROVE: (Experimental Probability)

How close will the experimental probability be to the theoretical probability?

Random Playing Card Selector

https://www.random.org/playing-cards/


RECORD RESULTS IN ISENSE:

1. Draw one card from the deck. (Using the Random Playing Card Selector)

2. Tally the card face and color of the card you selected.

3. Replace the card in the deck.

4. Repeat this 30 times.

5. Record the values for each card type into one data set. (Count - Card Name - Card Suit - Red - Black)
