# Probability Games to Help Kids with Math

Probability can be a difficult concept for kids to master, but there are many free probability games and exercises available online. These activities allow your child to review probability while having fun, without the pressure of timed tests or graded homework assignments. Read about three of them here.

## Math Goodies' Probability Exercises

Before playing probability math games, your child may want to review probability by reading the free lessons available from MathGoodies.com. Several aspects of probability are covered on this site, such as mutually exclusive events, addition rules and conditional probability. Each lesson comes with explanations of a few sample questions. Once those are reviewed, your child can practice answering the multiple-choice questions, which are scored instantly. Kids can try each answer until they reach the correct one.

## Between Waters' Free Games

Five free math probability games are offered at BetweenWaters.com. These are formatted simply, on a white background, which is especially good for children who don't like a lot of visual distractions. Each game comes with explanations and analysis, so you can review each concept with your child by quickly going over the information offered with the game. Leaving him or her alone to play the games independently after you've reviewed each concept together may help your son or daughter build confidence in understanding probability. Some of the topics covered are coin tosses, dice rolls and contestant order in game shows.

## Math Wire's Probability Board Games

MathWire.com has downloadable directions for hands-on probability games, as well as links to online games. The online games work well for kids who like independent activities, and the hands-on games are a fun way for you and your child to practice probability together. Each game comes with a printable PDF file, so you can create your own board game to set up on the kitchen table. One of the helpful aspects of this site is that the games are categorized by which probability lesson they reinforce. For example, seven posted games are designed to help demonstrate the probability outcomes of rolling one die.
