I won this lovely Probability Pouch from Love2Learn2day, so of course I had to have some fun with it. You could use any sort of pouch, or even a paper lunch bag or a cup. It did seem exciting to Quentin, however, to use this colorful bag with such a colorful name; "Probability Pouch." Using the name also reinforces the word "probability"each time we used talked about the pouch. |

I wanted to start with a two chance probability, most often called coin flipping as coins are the most readily available two-sided math manipulative to use. There are two-color math manipulatives you can buy, as well, but I decided to use our game pieces from our Othello game (another great math game) since they have two different color sides. |

Those Othello pieces would be perfect for an old Native American game, we're working on today!

ReplyDeleteI love the name too! How about using coins for double sided counters? That would work well also.
