Understand and evaluate random processes underlying statistical experiments.
For S.IC.2, include comparing theoretical and empirical results to evaluate the effectiveness of a treatment.
S.IC.2
Decide if a specified model is consistent with results from a given data-generating process, e.g., using simulation. For example, a model says a spinning coin falls heads up with probability 0.5. Would a result of 5 tails in a row cause you to question the model?

• Coin Toss
The coin toss activity in this lesson helps students explore probability.
• From Probability to Combinatorics and Number Theory
This lesson is designed to help students understand probability theory and look at data structures.
• Inferences and Conclusions From Data S.IC.1 and S.IC.2 Curriculum Guide
The Utah State Office of Education (USOE) and educators around the state of Utah developed these guides for the Secondary Mathematics III Cluster "Understand and Evaluate Random Processes Underlying Statistical Experiments" / Standards S.IC.1 and S.IC.2
• Marbles
This activity helps the student understand randomness and probability by pulling marbles out of a bag.
• Probability: Playing with Fire
This lesson is designed to help students understand possible outcomes of a probability experiment.
• Racing Game with One Die
Students can simulate a race between two cars with the roll of a die and learn about probability through this activity.
• Replacement and Probability
This lesson will help students learn the difference between sampling with and without replacement.
