Reflection: Data Analysis Probability Test - Section 2: Explore

 

In going over the results from the test, students struggled the most with compound events. I think next year I will build in a fluency day to practice compound events - as students were struggling to determine probabilities of flipping three coins or rolling two die.  I think it is difficult as a teacher to realize that probability is not as easy for some kids as it may seem!  In fact, my typical high flying students flew in the back of the pack for this test, while a few others stepped up and pleasantly surprised me!
