Created by Larry L. Hatfield for Illuminations: Resources for Teaching Mathematics, this lesson allows students to examine probabilities of outcomes. Cast in a game like context, reasoning about probability can be stimulated by questions of fairness. Students will predict and determine the fairness of games, then learn how to make an unfair game fair. They will organize and conduct an investigation, including empirical observations and theoretical analyzes. The site also offers insight into: learning objectives, materials needed, an instructional plan, NCTM standards and expectations and external references. This is a detailed lesson plan for statistics instructors.
