Find Compound Probabilities Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn to design and use a simulation to generate frequencies for compound events. The Find Compound Probabilities learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 7.SP.C.8.c as written in the common core national math standards.
Scroll down for a preview of this learning objective’s games and the concepts.
Use tree diagrams and tables for organizing the counting of outcomes for compound events. Use tables to approximate the empirical probability of events. Compound probability relates the likelihood of two independent events occurring. Compound probability is equal to the probability of the first event multiplied by the probability of the second event.
Set up models and use simulation to find desired frequencies. Use knowledge of theoretical probability to ensure that the sample size will yield the desired results.
