Exploring Theoretical and Experimental Probabilities

Activity Description Activity Guide


Theoretical and experimental probabilities are investigated by randomly throwing darts at a dartboard.

Mathematical Topics: area, theoretical probability, and experimental probability

Mathematical Thinking: Students will make predictions, using geometric probabilities, about the number of darts that will hit the circle of a dartboard.

Technology: Students will use the "Area Probability (Throw Darts!)" Activity developed by ExploreMath located at:
