Grade 6 - Statistics & Probability

Standard 6.SP.4 - Determine the probability of opposite and overlapping 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.
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 with 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.
