Mathematical Reflections

Tonight's homework required some note-taking ability in class. In case you weren't able to do this successfully, here are the questions again!

In this investigation, you explored games of chance. Working on the problems gave you an opportunity to review ideas about experimental probability and theoretical probability. These questions will help you summarize what you have learned:

1. a. Write a brief description of experimental probability.
1. b. Describe a strategy you have used to find experimental probabilities.

2. a. Write a brief description of theoretical probability.
2. b. Describe strategies you have used to find theoretical probabilities.

3. What does it mean for two or more events to be equally likely? Give examples of events that are equally likely.

We will have a test Wednesday. You need to be able to do the following:

-Find the probability of a simple event. Example: There are 30 students in math class. 20 are girls and 10 are boys. What is the probability that a randomly selected student will be a boy? P(boy) = 10/30 = 1/3 (Reduce!)

-Draw a tree diagram.

- Use the Fundamental Counting Principle to find the number of possible outcomes.
