ProbabiliTEE Putt Putt Kit
Students putt their way to probability mastery!
How likely is any given event to occur? Students find out as they collect data during exciting mini golf probability activities. Begin by placing the carpet in an open area with the ABS frame opposite the putting spot. Students observe their environment and predict the likelihood of putting the ball into each of five different-sized holes in the frame. After completing multiple attempts and documenting results, students determine the frequency of success and answer questions about how the number and size of each hole affects the probability of the ball entering it. Older students also discuss between theoretical and experimental probability and observe differences between the two as their hypotheses are put to the test in the real world. Durable tee carpet resists fraying and includes rubber backing to prevent sliding during use.
Set includes 1 frame (28"L x 12"W x 4"H, 1 lb), 1 carpet (60"L x 27-3/4"W, 6 lb), 6 golf clubs (27"L), 6 golf balls (2-1/2" dia), and lesson direction. The included lesson direction for grades K-4 and 5-8 details setup instructions, activities by grade level, learning objectives, and teaching suggestions to expand lessons. Recommended for Elementary and up.
