"Describing Chances", "Finding Probability" and "Showing Probability".
In the "Describing Chances" games you will get questions regarding the likeliness of events to occur, whether certain or impossible, more likely, less likely or equally likely.
In the second category, you will be asked to depict certain events as a simple fraction.
In the third category of games you will be asked to arrange objects to depict a certain probability.
This quiz has 10 multiple-choice questions.

Then you will get a full feedback where you can see your score and your correct and wrong answers, as well as a full detailed solution for every question.
The first part of this game consists of some trials in which colored balls are shuffeled inside the machine.
In every trial, two colored balls are given, and you have to estimate the chance of them being picked by the machine.
The second part consists of a simulation: Balls are shuffeled inside the machine, and every time you pull the handle, a ball is picked. There is a counter for every color, and you to see the relative frequency of the colors that were picked.
3 colored spinners will appear on the screen.
A sentence will be given, asking you to click the spinner that reflects some fraction value.
For example, "The probability of the pointer landing on purple is 2/9" - in this case click a spinner that is divided into 9 color regions, and that only 2 of them are purple.
Here you can find opportunities for your students to learn about and demonstrate their proficiency in probability. They can demonstrate their critical thinking and math skills and have fun with these colorful games at the same time!
Some of the exercises give students a group of items, and they’l be asked to determine the chance of selecting each one. Others are in the form of word problems and can help prepare students for math tests or quizes, which ask questions in a similar format.
The games are simple, perfect for younger students needing to spend time on the these concepts and learn more about its basic principles.
Most activities are intended for kids in 4th and 5th grade, and some are suitable for middle school students as well.
