Unit Title: Probability Name: Megan Tanielu


Content Area: Mathematics Grade Level: 7
CA Content Standard(s)/Common Core Standard(s):
CCSS.Math.7.SP.5. Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event
occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an
event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.

CCSS.Math.7.SP.7a. Develop a uniform probability model by assigning equal probability to all outcomes, and use the model to determine
probabilities of events.
Big Ideas/Unit Goals:
How does understanding probability help people make decisions?

How are probabilities expressed/represented?

How can theoretical probabilities be used to predict experimental probabilities?


Unit Summary:
Our Probability unit will be divided into three sections: theoretical or experimental probability (first section); types of events (second
section); and representations of a portion (third section). Each section will have many classwork assignments and activities to help students
practice the different topics of probability. For example, in the first section, students will view a teacher lecture on Theoretical and
Experimental Probability while completing corresponding guided notes. At the end of this section, students will differentiate between
theoretical and experimental probability.
In the second section, students will complete a webercise about types of events (impossible, possible, and certain events and independent
and dependent events) where they will explore various Internet resources and respond to numerous corresponding questions. Similar to the
first section, students will differentiate between impossible, possible, and certain events and will differentiate between independent and
dependent events. In the last section, students will explore two Internet resources about representations of a portion and complete a
corresponding graphic organizer. At the end of this section, students will be able to express probabilities not only as fractions but also as
decimals and percents. By the end of this unit, students will be able to assess the information from a given problem about the events and
probabilities (whether the events are impossible, possible, or certain; whether the events are independent and dependent; and whether the
probabilities are theoretical and experimental) and then evaluate the probability of an occurring event.
