This hands-on, minds-on session explores the mathematical principles of probability and addresses common misconceptions.


Experiments, simulations, puzzles, and problems will be used to develop multiple representations and models for understanding and decision making. Random events and outcomes, simple and compound probabilities, conditional probability, and expected values will be explored. Together, we'll develop deeper understanding of fundamental principles of probability, explore appropriate representations and models to support calculations, and discuss strategies for addressing student misconceptions. You'll leave prepared to implement these activities with your students!

This session is offered twice - please sign up for only one of the two sessions.
