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
