Standard(s) Taught

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 12 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.


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.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• 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, or likely not 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 data on chance events (hands-on events such as spinning a spinner and simulations) 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.
For example, when rolling a number cube 600 times, predict that a 3 or 6 would be rolled roughly 200 times, but probably not exactly 200 times.

Classroom Activities

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.

Wednesdays we do not complete our rotation. We work lessons customized to each students level on I-Ready. These lessons are customized to each learning level and scaffolds the current unit for each student

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)   None

students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments.

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday)  Mathspace Probability 

I-Ready Probability 

***Please check gradebook for your child’s class for specific due dates as they vary for each class.

We are starting an in-class project this week where students will be teaching one of the 6th Grade lessons. Please see attached for the rubric. Students will be presenting the last week of school.

Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems.

Students are able to complete additional practice on both Mathspace and IXL
