I am using this note handout to catch my honors geometry class up to speed on the probability concepts they "missed" my skipping 7th/8th grade math. I am posting it to our summer assignment and giving students an assessment in the first week of school over these basic concepts.

This handout covers:
EXPERIMENT
OUTCOMES
EVENT
FAVORABLE OUTCOMES
THEORETICAL PROBABILITY
TRIAL
EXPERIMENTAL PROBABILITY
COMPLEMENT (of an event)
COMPOUND EVENTS
INDEPENDENT EVENTS
DEPENDENT EVENTS
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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.
Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.
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.
