Use a tool (table, list or tree diagram) to record results of a repeated experiment.
MA.8.DP.2.AP.2
Select the theoretical probability of an event related to a repeated experiment from a list.
MA.8.DP.2.AP.3
Compare actual results of an experiment with its theoretical probability (e.g., make a statement that describes the relationship between the actual results of an experiment with its theoretical probability [e.g., more, less, same, different, equal]).
