  1. This is a complete compound and conditional probability unit. This is a bonus unit that's included in my Geometry Curriculum.*Note: This unit is best suited for on-level or lower-level/special education math classes. Supplements will most likely be needed for an honors or upper-level math class.*Upd

Description

These probability stations are a great way for students to review the compound and conditional probability standards!

The stations include:

  • Station 1: Set theory (sample space, union, intersection, complement, Venn diagrams)
  • Station 2: Outcomes and probability (finding probability from coins, dice; finding number outcomes from tree diagrams and fundamental counting principle)
  • Station 3: Compound probability (problems using addition and multiplication rules, frequency tables, deck of cards, independent/dependent events, mutually exclusive/overlapping events)
  • Station 4: Conditional probability (A given B, B given A, frequency tables)

Students must know characteristics about a deck of cards (I usually display a picture of a deck of cards on my Smart Board while they complete these stations.)

Answer keys for each station are included! There is also a student answer sheet!

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Describe events as subsets of a sample space (the set of outcomes) using characteristics (or categories) of the outcomes, or as unions, intersections, or complements of other events (“or,” “and,” “not”).
Understand that two events 𝘈 and 𝘉 are independent if the probability of 𝘈 and 𝘉 occurring together is the product of their probabilities, and use this characterization to determine if they are independent.
Understand the conditional probability of 𝘈 given 𝘉 as 𝘗(𝘈 and 𝘉)/𝘗(𝘉), and interpret independence of 𝘈 and 𝘉 as saying that the conditional probability of 𝘈 given 𝘉 is the same as the probability of 𝘈, and the conditional probability of 𝘉 given 𝘈 is the same as the probability of 𝘉.
Construct and interpret two-way frequency tables of data when two categories are associated with each object being classified. Use the two-way table as a sample space to decide if events are independent and to approximate conditional probabilities. For example, collect data from a random sample of students in your school on their favorite subject among math, science, and English. Estimate the probability that a randomly selected student from your school will favor science given that the student is in tenth grade. Do the same for other subjects and compare the results.
Recognize and explain the concepts of conditional probability and independence in everyday language and everyday situations. For example, compare the chance of having lung cancer if you are a smoker with the chance of being a smoker if you have lung cancer.
