PROBABILITY AND PROBLEM SOLVING. Children describe event as likely or less likely and create the probability examples. Children reflect on the process of mathematical problem solving. I would provide a real jar and color marbles.

Read the step by step guide for how I introduced compound probability to my students using a discovery lab. I love to start off the unit with questions, not just steps.

When you teach simple probability, it seems like you have to strike a balance between showing students how probability works and getting them to understand the math behind it.
