•  Two sheets of 36″ x 24″ poster board 
•  Two quarters 
•  A pair of dice (each die should be a different color) 
•  Colored pencils (optional) 
The goal of this session is to understand some basic ideas of probability and some of the relationships between probability and statistics. You will investigate probability by exploring the following: See Note 1 below. 

•  Random events 
•  Games of chance 
•  Finite, equally likely probability models 
•  Mathematical probabilities and the probability table 
•  Tree diagrams 
•  The binomial probability model
