1 Teacher s Guide Grade Level: K 2 Curriculum Focus: Mathematics Lesson Duration: Two class periods Program Description Discovering Math: Prediction and Probability From likelihood to frequency to prediction, introduce young students to the basic concepts of probability. Lesson Plan Student Objectives Explain how some events are more likely to happen than others. Describe how some events can be predicted based on given information. Materials Discovering Math: Prediction and Probability video Likelihood Chart (see below) Experiment Worksheet (see below) Mystery Object Clue Cards (see below) Brown bag for each student Colored objects (marbles, centimeter cubes, etc.) 47 red, 44 green, and 29 blue Procedures 1. Display the word likelihood. Ask students what they know about likelihood. Explain that it refers to the chance that something is going to happen. Display thee words: certain, likely, unlikely. Discuss their meanings; a certain event is one that will definitely happen; a likely event is one that will probably happen; and an unlikely event is one that will probably not happen.

3 Teacher s Guide 3 As an extension activity, have students work in pairs to create their own mystery bags. They can choose an object and write five clues about its identity. They should take turns giving clues about the object until their partners have enough information to make an accurate prediction. Assessment Use the following three-point rubric to evaluate students work during this lesson. 3 points: Students produced complete charts and mystery clues, including all the requested information; clearly demonstrated an understanding that some events are more likely to happen than others; and clearly demonstrated an understanding that accurate predictions are dependent on the amount of known information. 2 points: Students produced adequate charts and mystery clues, including most of the requested information; satisfactorily demonstrated an understanding that some events are more likely to happen than others; satisfactorily demonstrated an understanding that accurate predictions are dependent on the amount of known information. 1 point: Students created incomplete charts and mystery clues with little or none of the requested information; were not able to demonstrated an understanding that some events are more likely to happen than others; and did not clearly demonstrate an understanding that accurate predictions are dependent on the amount of known information. Vocabulary likelihood Definition: The chance that an event will happen; certain, likely, or unlikely Context: The students predicted the likelihood of rain on Saturday was unlikely because the meteorologist forecasted a sunny day with no clouds. prediction Definition: A statement that tells what might happen in the future based upon given information Context: Students made predictions about a mystery object s identity based on the information from the teacher.

The following information and activities are specific to the DVD version. How to Use the DVD The DVD starting screen has the following options: Play Video This plays the video from start to finish. There are no programmed stops, except by using a remote control. With a computer, depending on the particular software player, a pause button is included with the other video controls. Video Index Here the video is divided into chapters indicated by title. Each chapter is then divided into four sections indicated by video thumbnail icons; brief descriptions are noted for each section. To play a particular segment, press Enter on the remote for TV playback; on a computer,

5 Teacher s Guide 5 click once to highlight a thumbnail and read the accompanying text description and click again to start the video. Quiz Each chapter has four interactive quiz questions correlated to each of the chapter s four sections. Standards Link Selecting this option displays a single screen that lists the national academic standards the video addresses. Teacher Resources This screen gives the technical support number and Web site address. Video Index I. Likelihood (6 min.) Likelihood: Introduction We often consider the likelihood of events. Some events are likely, some are not, and the likelihood of others varies. Examples show jumping rope, throwing a ball, and weather. Example 1: Likely Events Many events are likely, and some are so likely we call them certain. These include the sun rising and setting, and healthy whales surfacing to breathe every few minutes. Example 2: Likely and Unlikely Events The likelihood of an event often depends on the conditions under which it takes place. An example shows how the relative numbers of toys in a box affect the likelihood of choosing each kind randomly. Example 3: Degrees of Likelihood A deck of 20 colored and numbered cards shows how the likelihood of picking a particular card depends on the number of that kind compared to the number of other kinds. II. Prediction: What Do You Know? (6 min.) Prediction: Introduction Information helps us make more accurate predictions. A mystery box illustrates how what we know affects predicting what we would find in the box. Example 1: Predictable Events Many events in nature are predictable because we know what affects them. The sun rising and setting and ocean waves are examples of predictable events. Example 2: Predicting Health and Illness Information about a person can help a doctor predict health or illness. Some problems develop without prediction because some information may not be available. Information can sometimes prevent health problems.

7 Teacher s Guide 7 II. Prediction: What Do You Know? 1. You have a mystery box. What do you need to make a good prediction about what is inside the box? A. the length of the box B. a picture of the box C. the height of the box D. information about what is inside the box Answer: D 2. We know that heavy winds cause waves. What could you predict on a windy day? A. waves will be larger B. waves will be smaller C. it will be sunny D. people will not be surfing Answer: A 3. Sally stays away from sick people, eats healthful foods, and exercises every day. What could you predict about Sally? A. she is a healthy person B. she gets sick all the time C. she always has a runny nose D. she eats a lot of junk food Answer: A 4. What does a meteorologist predict? A. health B. weather C. who will win a baseball game D. who will win an election Answer: B
