Total Pages 190 pages plus 74 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 1 month


This unit on Probability has almost 200 pages and 74 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism who are in middle and high school. This unit helps students understand how to determine the probability of an event and all the possible outcomes are. There are differentiated versions of the worksheets that use pictures and color coding. There are many ways for students to practice these skills in this unit that are at different levels. There are MANY opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on learning about certain vs impossible events, a probability line, as well as how to use a Venn diagram to look at probability more closely. This repetition helps students develop learning patterns.

*****This unit now includes 74 google slides (including a differentiated set) and a movie version of the book.

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated in these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, if we can ask students good questions it will push them to think more deeply than before.

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have. 

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future. Plus, it just means a lot to me.
