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

Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to observed frequencies; if the agreement is not good, explain possible sources of the discrepancy.

MAT-07.SP.07.a Develop a uniform probability model by assigning equal probability to all outcomes, and use the model to determine probabilities of events.

For example, if a student is selected at random from a class, find the probability that Jane will be selected and the probability that a girl will be selected.

Student Learning Targets:

I can find the theoretical probability.

I can find the number of favorable outcomes.

I can find the number of possible outcomes.

I can use a proportion to solve for the total number of outcomes or favorable number of outcomes.

I can use theoretical probabilities to solve real-world problems.
