### Description

PROBABILITY Word Problems - Error Analysis

Have your students apply their understanding of PROBABILITY with these ERROR ANALYSIS activities.

Giving students opportunities to identify and correct errors in presented solutions allows them to show their understanding of the mathematical concepts you have taught.

This resource includes 10 real-world PROBABILITY word problems that are solved incorrectly. Students have to IDENTIFY THE ERROR, provide the CORRECT SOLUTION and share a helpful STRATEGY for solving the problem. An ANSWER KEY has also been provided with examples of possible answers.

When I present this activity to my students, I tell them that these are errors that students from my other class made and I need their help to correct them. Students LOVE correcting other students mistakes. Students can use these activities with a partner, as a warm-up , as classwork, homework, in math centers or group work.

✔ probability of simple events

✔ theoretical and experimental probability

✔ probability of compound events

✔ simulations

✔ Fundamental Counting Principal

✔ permutations

✔ independent and dependent events

*7.SP.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.

* 7.SP.6 - 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.

* 7.SP.7 - Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to observed frequencies;

* 7.SP.8 - Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.

*Mathematics Practice Standard 3 - Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

### Standards

CCSS7.SP.C.8c

Design and use a simulation to generate frequencies for compound events. For example, use random digits as a simulation tool to approximate the answer to the question: If 40% of donors have type A blood, what is the probability that it will take at least 4 donors to find one with type A blood?

CCSS7.SP.C.8b

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.

CCSS7.SP.C.8a

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.

CCSS7.SP.C.8

Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.

CCSS7.SP.C.7b

Develop a probability model (which may not be uniform) by observing frequencies in data generated from a chance process. For example, find the approximate probability that a spinning penny will land heads up or that a tossed paper cup will land open-end down. Do the outcomes for the spinning penny appear to be equally likely based on the observed frequencies?
