CARNIVAL GAME PROJECT
Timeline:
Days 1-2: Work carnival game – ideas, probability calculations, diagrams, materials list for
game, build game, etc.
Day 3: Present carnival game (need either picture of game or game itself)
Items that should be included in your presentation:
1. Theoretical probability of winning the game
2. Rules/How to play the game – you can demonstrate if you want
3. Prizes – what you win.
Day 4: Play carnival games and record results (use to calculate Experimental Probability)
DIRECTIONS: Design a carnival game.
1. Create a Working carnival game. It must be a working, playable game in order to collect
data.
2. Collect data for your game on Carnival Day to calculate your experimental probabilities. You
must have at least 25 plays.
3. Complete a report (using attached report sheet – you will show calculations here) with the
following information:
a. Information about the game:
1. Rules of the game
2. Cost to play the game (tickets/stamps)
3. Prizes you win and how you win
b. Theoretical probability of winning the prizes (Show how you calculated this
probability.) You may need to include a tree diagram.
c. Experimental probability of winning the game - (calculated AFTER the games are
played)
d. Written explanation comparing the theoretical probability and the experimental
probability.
Grading Rubric
Game (as graded on Carnival Day)
 20 points—The game is well-made, easy to play
 15 points—The game is included and playable, but problems of design or construction are
evident.
 10 points—The game is included but is difficult to play and poorly made.
 5 points—The game is included, but it is not playable
 0 points—The game is not included.
Report
a. The Rules of the game
 10 points—Clearly states rules, which are easy to understand.
 5 points—Gives rules, but does not clearly state them.
 0 points—Does not give any rules.
b. Prizes and how to earn the prizes
 10 points— Organized and easy-to-understand list prizes
 5 points—Prizes are hard to follow
 0 points – No prizes listed
c. Theoretical probability of winning the game
 15 points—Correct computation of theoretical probability of winning the game.
 10 points—Has some errors in computing probabilities. Not enough trials while
finding experimental probability.
 5 points—Gives only one probability or has major errors.
 0 points—Does not give or address correctly any probabilities.
d. Experimental probability of winning the game
 15 points—Correct computation of experimental probability of winning the game.
Meets 25+ trials limit.
 10 points—Has some errors in computing probabilities. Not enough trials while
finding experimental probability.
 5points—Gives only one probability or has major errors.
 0 points—Does not give or address correctly any probabilities.
e. Written comparison
 15 points—Clearly and articulately explains the difference between the theoretical and
experimental probability.
 10 points—Comparison is included, but is hard to follow or unclear.
 0 points—Does not include a comparison.
f. Presentation
 15 points—Clear, concise, understand how to play game and how prizes are won, positive
interaction with those playing
 10 points—Clear, concise, unclear exactly how to play game and how prized are won, difficulty
interacting with those playing
 5 point—Not clear or concise, not sure how to play game
 0 points—Not clear or concise, no idea how game works or is played
