Students roll number cubes and use a spreadsheet to record how many times they land on numbers one through six, and demonstrate knowledge of mathematical probability.

Application Exercises give students an opportunity to apply concepts they have learned in previous instruction. Work completed by a student will be graded through a variety of scoring options including participation and teacher assessment via rubric to provide flexibility with the type of grade sent to the Learning Management System (LMS) gradebook. Student work may include open-ended questions, correct/incorrect responses, a final product and/or self-assessment.
