Instructions for Use

Understanding Experimental Probability allows students to create a spinner, predict the probability of the arrow landing on each colour, and then testing the probability by spinning the spinner.

Click on “New Spinner” and select the spinner you would like to use. Select the number of spins you want. Predict how many times, in that number of spins, that you think the arrow will land on each colour. Then click “Spin” to test your prediction.
