Today in class . . . we reviewed compound probability and practiced together in class. Students then continued working on the What Are My Chances? Task from Friday. Students actually conducted probability experiments and compared the results to theoretical probability. This task was due at the end of class today (except Period 5).
Collected: What Are My Chances? Task
Practice: 1) Dependent & Independent Compound Events Practice, #2, 5, and 6 only. 2) Review/practice for the RETAKE on the Theoretical & Experimental Probability Skills Check tomorrow in class.
- Unit 5 Test Retakes on Thursday, 4/26, at 8am and 4:30pm with the following: 1) Test corrections done on a separate sheet of notebook paper for the Unit 5 Test. 2) All practice/homework assignments from Unit 5. See attached for a complete listing: Practice Assignments for Unit 5 2018-2gvk7nh
Georgia Standards of Excellence for Math 7 for this week:
MGSE7.SP.5 Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around ½ indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.
MGSE7.SP.6 Approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the chance process that produces it and observing its long-run relative frequency. Predict the approximate relative frequency given the probability.
MGSE7.SP.7 Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare experimental and theoretical probabilities of events. If the probabilities are not close, explain possible sources of the discrepancy.
MGSE7.SP.8 Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.
