Paper Bag Probability

Learning Goals: Math, Data Management

    • Pose a probability question to students, such as: if we have 4 panda erasers and 2 koala erasers in a bag, is it likely or unlikely to pick a koala eraser?
    • Pick out of the bag 10 times, and record which eraser is pulled using tallies on chart paper. 
    • Students can be encouraged to guess which eraser will be pulled out each time.
