Mrs. Ayala's 7th grade Math class recently did a PBL titled, "How much chance is there in a game of chance?"
They were given the following instructions:
"Your school's student council is planning to host a series of game nights to boost student/parent/community involvement in the school. The student council is asking for your help in putting together a line-up for one night in the series. Local businesses have donated prizes of various values in exchange for advertising of their products by using them in half of the games.
Your group is to find six games, like those found on The Price is Right game show, which can be used to win prizes. The games you choose must vary in difficulty level because there is a limited supply of prizes, but you do want people to win and enjoy themselves. For each game you choose for your line-up your group must provide mathematical proof of the difficulty level. Of the six games you choose at least half must highlight different products from the various stores that have supplied the prizes. Your group will present your line-up to the student council, student council representative, the principal, and various managers from local stores."
