Data and Probability

Page history last edited by Marianne Dilworth 9 years, 8 months ago

Students conduct simple probability experiments by determining the number of possible outcomes and make simple predictions:

 

Identify whether common events are certain, likely, unlikely, or improbable.

 

Practice Questions

 

Predict the likelyhood of a given outcome then click Submit.  Outcomes may be...

Certain

Probable

Unlikely

Improbable

Impossible

 

Record the possible outcomes for a simple event (e.g., tossing a coin) and systematically

keep track of the outcomes when the event is repeated many times.

Summarize and display the results of probability experiments in a clear and organized

way (e.g., use a bar graph or a line plot).

Use the results of probability experiments to predict future events (e.g., use a line

plot to predict the temperature forecast for the next day).
