Lesson objective: Apply understanding of collecting and organizing data to write experimental probabilities with a non-uniform event, dropping a plastic dinosaur to see how it lands.

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of experimental probabilities to a real-life situation. Students are asked to collect and organize data on an experiment with dropping the plastic dinosaur and calculating the experimental probabilities. They are asked to use their calculations to support a claim about how the dino is likely to fall when dropped in a game of Drop the Dino.

Key Concept students will use:

- We can generate hypotheses about the likelihood of an event by counting observed occurrences of an event and the total number of observations.

Skills students will use:

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 4 (Model with mathematics) as they use experimental probabilities to analyze a real-world experiment with a non-uniform event.

**Key vocabulary: **

**Special materials needed:**

- optional: a plastic figure that students could use to perform their own experiment, following the lesson
