MAFS.7.SP.3.6 Approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the chance process that produces it and observing its long-run relative frequency, and predict the approximate relative frequency given the probability.
MAFS.7.SP.3.7 Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to observed frequencies; if the agreement is not good, explain possible sources of the discrepancy.
MAFS.7.SP.3.8 Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams and simulation.

I’m using Study.com videos from a site to which I subscribe. If students are absent and miss a video, they can be viewed during lunch or at after school tutoring. Thursday is my designated day for Advanced Math.
