“Residents”? do you work at a boarding school?

]]>Right now we’re just doing the basics of probability, so I’ve done a bunch of two way tables and venn diagrams (and although I’m bored I actually don’t think my students are at all) which seems to be working.

We just started on conditional probability and I have some fun activities like using fun size bags of skittles & m&ms to find conditional probability. But I’m not using them, I’m doing more problems. I’m still pretty uneasy about this approach, but its worth a try since fun-activities-and-discussion got us nowhere last year.
