Grade 6 - Statistics & Probability

Standard 6.SP.4 - Practice finding the probability of simple events.

Included Skills:

Demonstrate an understanding of probability by:
identifying all possible outcomes of a probability experiment
differentiating between experimental and theoretical probability
determining the theoretical probability of outcomes in a probability experiment
determining the experimental probability of outcomes in a probability experiment
comparing experimental results with the theoretical probability for an experiment.

Achievement Indicators
Students who have achieved this outcome(s) should be able to:
- List the possible outcomes of a probability experiment, such as:
tossing a coin
rolling a die with a given number of sides
spinning a spinner with a given number of sectors.
- Determine the theoretical probability of an outcome occurring for a given probability experiment.
- Predict the probability of a given outcome occurring for a given probability experiment by using theoretical probability.
- Conduct a probability experiment, with or without technology, and compare the experimental results to the theoretical probability.
- Explain that as the number of trials in a probability experiment increases, the experimental probability approaches theoretical probability of a particular outcome.
- Distinguish between theoretical probability and experimental probability, and explain the differences.
