Coin Toss

Today, in Math, we extended our learning about equally likely events by playing a coin toss game. Before playing, students examined a coin and tried to identify the probability of events related to tossing the coin. 


Then, students learned how to play the game. To play, students flip a coin and record the outcome (heads or tails) on ten frames. To make the game more interesting, student could pick to be either heads or tails and play to see who wins. 


After playing, we discussed the outcome of the students’ games and compared it to our predictions.
