In this math activity, learners explore probability as they play a game. Learners will categorize everyday events as either impossible, possible or certain. This activity guide contains a material list, black line masters for the game board, game instructions, sample questions to ask, literary connections, extensions, and alignment to local and national standards.

Students learn about probability through a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NTX-based activity that simulates a game of "rock-paper-scissors." The LEGO robot mimics the outcome of random game scenarios in order to help students gain a better understanding of events that follow real-life random phenomenon, such as bridge failures, weather forecasts and automobile accidents. Students learn to connect keywords such as certainty, probable, unlikely and impossibility to real-world engineering applications. Less

The Superhyperbolic (Superultramodern) Doubt

The superhyperbolic doubt is the principle that "anything may be possible", for ... More

The superhyperbolic doubt is the principle that "anything may be possible", for that which could otherwise be believed to be absolutely (or 100%) certainly impossible at present could be possible as the intellectual capacities of the believer may be limited. That is, the proposition/s, for example, that are otherwise thought to be absolutely certainly true could be false. The superhyperbolic doubt is compared and attempted to shown to be superior to the hyperbolic Cartesian doubt and the idea/proposition that ‘anything is possible'. Furthermore, its implications are stated and discussed, the implications like ‘all axioms as 99.99% certainly true' and ‘all mathematics as philosophy'. Since the superhyperbolic doubt is the first and the most basic principle of my superultramodern science and philosophy, it could also be referred to as the superultramodern doubt. Less

In this math lesson, learners explore probability. Learners brainstorm activities that are possible and impossible, make a flap book, and read and discuss the book, "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs." Learners also investigate the probability of selecting a pink "pig" (pink cotton ball) from a bag containing varying amounts of pink and white "pigs" (cotton balls). Learners make predictions, record data, and graph the results. This activity is written as a four day lesson, but can be shortened into a one-time activity. Less
