Big Ideas: Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models. The probability of an event is a number that measures the likelihood that the event will occur. Probabilities are between 0 and 1, including 0 and 1. In this task, students will develop a better understanding of probability by creating and analyzing organized tables. From the tables, students will generate a number that measures the likelihood that an event will occur. This task will lead to future understanding of simulated events and the difference between theoretical and experimental probability. Vocabulary: organized table Special Materials: Dice ++,--,÷,and x Dice
