Determine Independence by Comparing Conditional Probability to Simple Probability
3 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Now that class members know what conditional probability is, go further to determine if two events are independent through the use of a table. The probability of playing sports and playing an instrument are compared and eventually...
Understand Conditional Probability
5 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Getting young statisticians to make the leap from simple to conditional probability can involve memorizing formulas and new vocabulary. Or it can be done as in this presentation, with simple logic and explanation of the process behind...
The Last Banana: A Thought Experiment in Probability
4 mins 7th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Your learners will be surprised by the thought-provoking, counterintuitive puzzle presented in this short video that models a fun, fictional situation in which a game is played with two number cubes to decide which of two people wins a...
Study Jams! Probability as a Fraction
4th - 7th CCSS: Adaptable
Pick a card, any card... and then follow along with this step-by-step presentation as Sam from the Study Jams! crew determines what chance he has of drawing a jack from a deck of cards. This context serves to clearly model how fractions...
Probability and Relative Frequency
7th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
It's all relatively simple once you get the gist. Young mathematicians learn about sample spaces and simple probability by conducting an activity with dice. To complete the second of six parts in the Statistics and Probability unit, they...
Calculate Conditional Probabilities Using a Two-Way Table
7 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Multiple worked examples and clear explanation of arithmetic steps really make this presentation on conditional probability stand out. Specifically, an emphasis on the reasoning behind the calculations helps young statisticians develop...
Student Workbook: Statistics and Probability
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Statistically, practicing this packet completely helps young mathematicians do well on the test. The packet is adaptable to many grade levels as it includes basic probability and goes up to data analysis with mean, median, and mode.
Calculating the Probability of Simple Events
9 mins 7th - 12th
You can calculate the theoretical probability of an event without actually testing it. Mathematicians who are new to probability or those who simply need to review will benefit from watching this video of a teacher solving two problems...
Show That Associated Events Are Not Independent by Comparing Simple and Conditional Probability
5 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Conditional probability takes the probability out of a particular subset, but doesn't mean the two events are always associated. The video compares different scenarios to determine if two events are independent or associated with one...
Probability and Statistics: Probability of an Outcome
9th - 12th
What is the difference between experimental and theoretical probability? Use this two-sided worksheet to give learners a simple introduction to these concepts, and a chance to practice them. Examples on the first side offer a chance to...
Conditional Probability and Probability of Simultaneous Events
7th - 9th
Your statisticians examine the characteristics of conditional probability and the probability of simultaneous independent events. They perform computer activities to find probabilities for simple compound events. They examine the...
