7th Grade MAT Targeted Standards Domain (SP) Statistics and Probability Cluster: Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models

MAT-07.SP.05 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 ½ indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.

Student Learning Targets:

I can define probabilite as a ratio that compares favorable outcomes to all possible outcomes.

I can recognize and explain that probabilities are expressed as a number between 0 to 1.

I can interpret a probability near 0 as unlikely to occur and a probability near 1 as likely to occur.

I can interpret a probability near 1/2, as being equally able to occur as to not occur
