The Power of Probability
Calculating Simple and Compound Probability
Welcome to "The Power of Probability," a new math program aligned with NCTM and Common Core State Standards, which gives students opportunities to practice their skills and knowledge of the mathematics of probability.
Developed by The Actuarial Foundation with Scholastic, the program's lessons and worksheets motivate students through activities that use mathematics for real purposes.
Students will use tree diagrams, tables, and the fundamental counting principle to calculate probability.
Students will use a sample to make predictions about a population and add the probabilities of multiple outcomes to determine the probability of an event.
