These Valentine's Day activities are based on the small candy hearts popular around this holiday. Instead of sayings, these mathematical hearts have letters.

Students are trying to accumulate all of the letters in the word VALENTINE or HEART. They first predict how many letters they will have to draw from the bag, then they conduct the experiment, collect and organize data and analyze the class results.

**Materials:**

- Download Valentine Probability for a straightforward probability handout.
- Download Valentine Probability Investigation for the hearts and recording sheet to conduct the probability investigation on how many letters students will have to draw (with replacement) to get all of the letters in the word VALENTINE.
- Download Heart Probability Investigation for the hearts and recording sheet to conduct the simplified probability investigation on how many letters students will have to draw (with replacement) to get all of the letters in the word HEART.
