 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.3

Understand the conditional probability of A given B as P(A and B)/P(B), and interpret independence of A and B as saying that the conditional probability of B given A is the same as the probability of B.

• 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.
• 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.
• Tree Diagrams and Probability
This lesson focuses on how to figure probability by having the students create tree diagrams. 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.
