Standard 5.0 Knowledge of Probability
Students will use experimental methods or theoretical reasoning to determine probabilities to make predictions or solve problems about events whose outcomes involve random variation.
A. Sample Space
- 1. Identify a sample space
B. Theoretical Probability
- 1. Determine the probability of an event comprised of no more than 2 independent events
- 2. Determine the probability of a second event that is dependent on a first event of equally likely outcomes
C. Experimental Probability
- 1. Analyze the results of a survey or simulation
- 2. Conduct a probability experiment
- 4. Describe the difference between theoretical and experimental probability
Note: Highlighted assessment limits will be tested in the no calculator section of MSA. In the assessment limit, (0-10) or (-10 to 10) means all numbers in the problem or the answer will fall within the range of 0 to 10 (including endpoints) or -10 to 10 (including endpoints), respectively. All content standards are tested in MSA but not all objectives. Objectives that have an assessment limit are tested on MSA. Objectives without an assessment limit are not tested on MSA.
