How Can Teachers Use It?

CK-12's Probability module covers a diverse range of resources, including reading passages, pre- and post-read activities, assessments, videos, study aids, and links to external sites. Content coverage is comprehensive, covering everything from Counting Techniques to Properties of the Normal Distribution and everything in between. Listed within each topic there are also subtopics, making navigation easy. For example, under the Set Theory topic, subtopics include Sets, Venn Diagrams, Sample Spaces and Events, and Operations with Sets. You can click on any subtopic to find the resources housed within.  

Be sure to check out the Read activities, which can be a great follow-up to a lesson on a similar topic. Have your students work through the activities independently or in small groups, but be sure to review and discuss the Guided Practice problems as a whole class. Use the videos to supplement your whole-class instruction -- you can pause to address any common areas of confusion or questions that might come up.
