probability and words

a ppt is here

the letters of words are put into a hat and one is selected at random

you might point out to students that a probability scale is usually horizontal
but isn't for these resources so that lines can be drawn from the words to a point on the scale

you might also point out that the scale divisions can be any number you like - only the end points are fixed

it might be helpful to have dictionaries available
