MAFS.7.SP.3.5
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 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.
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 longrun 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.
 Develop a uniform probability model by assigning equal probability to all outcomes, and use the model to determine probabilities of events.
 Develop a probability model (which may not be uniform) by observing frequencies in data generated from a chance process.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria 

Students are successful when they can…
 understand that probabilities are numbers from 0 to 1.
 understand that the probability of 1 is certain and 0 is impossible.
 justify the categorization of events as likely, unlikely, equally likely, or neither likely non unlikely and use appropriate vocabulary.
 conduct simple experiments and calculate probabilities
 explain the difference between experimental and theoretical probability using appropriate vocabulary and examples.
 collect date on chance events and approximate the relative frequency of an event given the probability.
 use variability to explain why the experimental probability will not always exactly equal the theoretical probability.
 calculate simple probabilities of events
 create a uniform probability model ( a situation in which all outcomes are equally likely)
 compare the results of trials and draw conclusions
 compare / contrast uniform vs. non uniform probability models
