## PROBABILITY

**UNIT:**Probability

**BIG IDEAS**(taken from “Big Ideas by Dr. Small”):

- Real-world situations can be represented using probabilities.
- Probability can be used to predict outcomes.
- An experimental probability is based on past events and experiments.
- A theoretical probability is based on an analysis of what could happen.

**STUDENT LEARNING GOALS:**

- I can identify probabilities from real-world scenarios.
- I can make predictions based on theoretical and/or experimental probabilities.

**CURRICULUM EXPECTATIONS:**

- express theoretical probability as a ratio of the number of favourable outcomes to the total number of possible outcomes, where all outcomes are equally likely (e.g., the theoretical probability of rolling an odd number on a six-sided number cube because, of six equally likely outcomes,
- represent the probability of an event (i.e.,the likelihood that the event will occur), using a value from the range of 0 (never happens or impossible) to 1 (always happens or certain);
- predict the frequency of an outcome of a simple probability experiment or game, by calculating and using the theoretical probability of that outcome
