Use permutations and combinations to compute probabilities of compound events and solve problems.


General Information

Subject Area: Mathematics
Grade: 912
Domain-Subdomain: Statistics & Probability: Conditional Probability & the Rules of Probability
Cluster: Use the rules of probability to compute probabilities of compound events in a uniform probability model. (Algebra 2 - Additional Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

Problem-Solving Tasks

Name Description
Return to Fred's Fun Factory (with 50 cents)

The task is intended to address sample space, independence, probability distributions and permutations/combinations.

Alex, Mel, and Chelsea Play a Game

This task combines the concept of independent events with computational tools for counting combinations, requiring fluent understanding of probability in a series of independent events.

Random Walk III

The task provides a context to calculate discrete probabilities and represent them on a bar graph.

Random Walk IV

This problem solving task gives a situation where the numbers are too large to calculate, so abstract reasoning is required in order to compare the different probabilities.
