 Secondary Mathematics II

HONORS - Strand: STATISTICS AND PROBABILITY - Conditional Probability and the Rules of Probability (S.CP)

Understand independence and conditional probability and use them to interpret data (Standards S.CP.2�3). Use the rules of probability to compute probabilities of compound events in a uniform probability model (Standards S.CP.7�8).

HONORS - Standard S.CP.2

Understand that two events A and B are independent if the probability of A and B occurring together is the product of their probabilities, and use this characterization to determine if they are independent.

• Conditional Probability and Probability of Simultaneous Events
This lesson plan is designed to help students understand and use the formula for probability of simultaneous independent events.
• Crazy Choices Game
Students will understand probability by playing various games of chance in this lesson's applet.
• Events and Outcomes (Counting)
This collection of resources to teach graphing equations in slope intercept form includes warm-up exercises, a video presentation explaining the topic, practice exercises, worked examples, practice problems, and a review.
• Events and Outcomes (Counting) video
This video introduces and explains the topic.
• From Probability to Combinatorics and Number Theory
This lesson is designed to help students understand probability theory and look at data structures.
• Ideas that Lead to Probability
This lesson is designed so that students will understand the concept of probability by working with random number generators.
• Introduction to the Materials (Math 2)
Introduction to the Materials in the Mathematics Two of the The MVP classroom experience begins by confronting students with an engaging task and then invites them to grapple with solving it. As students ideas emerge, take form, and are shared, the teacher orchestrates the student discussions and explorations towards a focused mathematical goal. As conjectures are made and explored, they evolve into mathematical concepts that the community of learners begins to embrace as effective strategies for analyzing and solving problems.
• Permutations and Combinations
This collection of resources to teach graphing equations in slope intercept form includes warm-up exercises, a video presentation explaining the topic, practice exercises, worked examples, practice problems, and a review.
• Permutations and Combinations video
This video introduces and explains the topic.
• Probability of Independent Events
This collection of resources to teach graphing equations in slope intercept form includes warm-up exercises, a video presentation explaining the topic, practice exercises, worked examples, practice problems, and a review.
• Probability of Independent Events video
This video introduces and explains the concept.
• Racing Game with Two Dice
By using the applet embedded in this lesson plan, students can simulate a race and learn about probability.
• Two Colors Applet
The applet in this lesson helps the student understand dependent event probability. http://www.uen.org - in partnership with Utah State Board of Education (USBE) and Utah System of Higher Education (USHE).  Send questions or comments to USBE Specialist - Joleigh Honey and see the Mathematics - Secondary website.
