Standard(s) Taught 

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.
MAFS.7.SP.3.8
Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.

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.

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.

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 nor unlikely and use appropriate vocabulary.
 explain the difference between experimental and theoretical probability using appropriate vocabulary and examples.
 use variability to explain why the experimental probability will not always exactly equal the theoretical probability.
 calculate simple probabilities of events
 define compound probabilities as fractions of the sample space taken from.
 read sample spaces as organized lists, tables, or tree diagrams to determine the probability of a compound event.
