Probability / Likelihood Gumball Machine Cut and Paste Activity

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

My students always love when we start learning about probability and likelihood.  There is something about the random probability of choosing a certain item that intrigues them.  My cut and paste activity involving gumball machines always is a big hit with my students, and allows them to think about the probability or likelihood of randomly choosing a certain color from the gumball machine.

Students will be cutting and gluing 12 gumball machines according to their probability or likelihood of randomly choosing a gumball. There are 2 versions: (1) Black & white, and (2) Color.
