Purpose: The overarching goal of this lesson is to teach students about probability and outcomes. This fits into the ‘bigger picture’ because it will help all students to predict the outcomes of certain events or trials. Students need to know about this because it relates to their everyday lives.
Objectives: As a result of this lesson:
• Students will be able to analyze the outcomes of possible scenarios by using tree diagrams, lists, tables, etc…
• Students will be able to predict the probability of outcomes of simple experiments and test the predictions. (ex/ tossing a coin, rolling a die)
