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

MAT-07.SP.06 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.

For example, when rolling a number cube 600 times, predict that a 3 or 6 would be rolled roughly 200 times, but probably not exactly 200 times.

Student Learning Targets:

I can collect data on a chance process to approximate its probability.

I can use probability to predict the number of times a particular event will occur given a specific number of trials.

I can use variability to explain why the experimental probability will not always exactly equal the theoretical probability.
