1
Time-Axis Fallacy and Bayes' Theorem
ORC# 72
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: Most students understand that the probability of an event occurring can be influenced by another event that has already occurred. However, many students do not understand that the probability of an event occurring can actually be dependent on an event that occurred later....

Sticks and Stones
ORC# 5285
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: A game based on the Apache game of "Throwing Sticks" is the foundation for this lesson on probability. Younger students can play the game and record results in a sticky note bar graph (ORC notes that the word occurrences is misspelled on the pictured bar graph)....

The Smithville Families
ORC# 267
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: First, students review Pascal's Triangle by completing and discussing the entries of the first eight rows. They then determine the total number of possible girl/boy combinations in a five-child family....
