You may want to do the lesson called "Why Can't I Win" before you do this lesson. When my dad and I play a game, I always win.  I use my special spinner and I usually choose red. Look carefully at the spinner.  What color usually wins? Select    your answer   from the choices in the box. Select your choice. Red Green Blue | Because there are 4 parts to the spinner and 2 of them are red, we have a 2 out of 4 chance to spin red.  The probability is 2 out of 4. Of the 4 parts, 1 is blue.   What are the chances the spinner will land on blue?   Type your answer in the blank. Red = 2 out of 4 Blue = ? (Type in your answer) Green = ? (Type in your answer) | Look at this spinner.  What color will probably win the most spins? Blue Red Green What are the chances that each color will win?  Type the probability for each color. Example: 1 out of 12 RED= GREEN= BLUE= | Look at this spinner.  What color will probably win the most spins? What are the chances that each color will win?

 Red= Green=  Blue=  Brown= | There are many ways of writing the probability that something will happen  On this spinner look at the purple part. Purple=1/12 Purple=1 out of 12 Purple= 1:12  | Type the 3 ways of telling our chances of spinning red. Check your answer to find out if you are correct.

 Red = _out of_ Red = / Red = : | Type the 3 ways of telling the probability of spinning brown. Click your answer to find out if you are correct.
 Brown =_out of _ Brown= /  Brown = : | I have a bag of candy pieces but I only like the orange ones.  What are my chances of getting each color?  Type the probability. Orange= Red= Green= Will I probably get an orange one? Click your answer. Yes Yes No No | Now that you know the probability of getting each color.  Write each probability as a fraction and ratio. Orange =3 out of 16 Orange = 3/16 Orange = 3:16 Red=6 out of 16 Red=  : Red=  / 6:16 & 6/16 4:16 & 4/16 Green=7 out of 16 Green=  : Green=  / 7:16 & 7/16 5:16 & 5/16

 I have my spinner all ready.  I think I'll be blue.  OK?  |
