        The Lowdown | Your Odds of Winning Powerball: Probabilities of Compound Events Using Visuals

        In this video, explore the odds of winning the Powerball lottery and learn what few people realize about their chances of winning: they are miniscule. In the accompanying classroom activity, students create simple lottery models to help them understand the probability of compound events.

This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
