 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.8

Apply the general Multiplication Rule in a uniform probability model, P(A and B) = P(A)P(B|A) = P(B)P(A|B), and interpret the answer in terms of the model.

• 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.
• 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.
• 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 - Lindsey Henderson and see the Mathematics - Secondary website.
