Then, I found Mr. Nussbaum's Probability Fair!
There are 5 different carnival games related to probability. At first I just let my students explore.
Then, we talked about the math behind the games.
What is the probability that you will get a 10 on the Plinko game?
They played some more, then wrote about the math. Finally, they had to give a
person advise about going to the carnival.
Continuing with the carnival theme, I paired students up and gave them a popcorn bag. Ok, it wasn't popcorn, it was colored tiles. They were a bit disappointed, but got over it. Probability in a popcorn bag!
