Counting Trees

Today we learned how to make counting trees to determine the number of possible outcomes when working with two or more events. Tonight's homework is from the textbook.

Math (1st, 2nd, 5th): Section 9.2, problems 7-12

Pre-Algebra (3rd, 4th): Page 638, problems 10-13. 4th Period also has Worksheet 1.3 ACE. (These problems may be quite challenging. To earn a stamp, I must see evidence that you tried the problems!)

If you would like to explore probability a little further, you can find a coin-toss simulator here, and a spinner here.
These are from the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives, which is a great site to explore! The site requires Java, which is a free download.
