Probability
The below QuickQuestion Interface © generates random questions on probability.
There are 5 choices of environment (coins, dice, cards, spinners, and balls in bags). You can also choose what type of question you would like in each environment, as well as being able to use a mixture.
There is a 10QQI version of this activity.

Ideas for Teachers
Get students thinking about different areas of probability using this activity as a starter, or with Mini Whiteboards. There are 5 different environments that are common in probability. You can have Simple Probability questions, which just have students work out the probability of an event, Estimated Frequency questions which get students to use these probabilities to estimate how many times an event will occur given a number of trials. Finally, the Is it Biased questions, get students to think about if the amount of successes is in line with a fair experiment. The answers here are open to interpretation, so they can prove good discussion starters.
