Q2, W8: January 11th – 15th Advanced Math

TeacherFelicia Taylor
Subject AreaAdvanced Math
Grade Level7th
Week #17
Unit of InstructionFocus 4: Probability
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.7.SP.3.8

Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.

  1. Understand that, just as with simple events, the probability of a compound event is the fraction of outcomes in the sample space for which the compound event occurs.

  2. Represent sample spaces for compound events using methods such as organized lists, tables and tree diagrams. For an event described in everyday language (e.g., “rolling double sixes”), identify the outcomes in the sample space which compose the event.

  3. Design and use a simulation to generate frequencies for compound events.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students are successful when they can…

  • explain orally and in writing the similarities and differences between single and compound event.
  • define compound probabilities as fractions of the sample space taken from.
  • read and create sample spaces as organized lists, tables, or tree diagrams to determine the probability of a compound event.
  • select the appropriate tools for a simulation for a compound event and use the data it generates to approximate the probability of an event.
  • explain orally and/or in writing how the simulation was selected, why it models a compound event and not a single event, the data it generated and how the probability was approximated.
