Learn to use the Fundamental Counting Principle and tree diagrams to calculate outcomes.
This lesson covers Tree Diagrams, combinations or permutations to determine the probabilities of multiple events and probability distributions.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Tree Diagrams.
To organize ideas, increase comprehension, synthesize learning, demonstrate understanding of key concepts, and reinforce vocabulary using a Quickwrite.
To activate prior knowledge, make personal connections, reflect on key concepts, encourage critical thinking, and assess student knowledge on the topic prior to reading using a Quickwrite.
Come up with questions about a topic and learn new vocabulary words to determine answers using an Ask, Answer, Learn table.
Strengthen ability to analyze word meaning and symbolic or mathematical notation from context and introduce students to unfamiliar vocabulary or notation. Further solidify understanding by defining new vocabulary words and notation as well as generating personal examples of words, concepts, and notation usage.
Learn new vocabulary words and help remember them by coming up with your own sentences with the new words using a Stop and Jot table.
Students will determine which of the given sports outcomes can be represented with discrete random variables and why. Then they will represent those situations with tree diagrams.
This study guide reviews the probability of simple events, non-simple events, complementary events, compound events, conditional events, independent events, and mutually exclusive events. It also looks at tree diagrams and counting, combination, and permutation.
