# MAFS.912.S-CP.1.1Archived Standard

Describe events as subsets of a sample space (the set of outcomes) using characteristics (or categories) of the outcomes, or as unions, intersections, or complements of other events (“or,” “and,” “not”).
General Information
Subject Area: Mathematics
Domain-Subdomain: Statistics & Probability: Conditional Probability & the Rules of Probability
Cluster: Level 1: Recall
Cluster: Understand independence and conditional probability and use them to interpret data. (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.

## Lesson Plans

Modeling Conditional Probabilities 1: Lucky Dip:

This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to understand conditional probability, represent events as a subset of a sample space using tables and tree diagrams, and communicate their reasoning clearly.

Type: Lesson Plan

Modeling Conditional Probabilities 2:

This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students understand conditional probability, and, in particular, to help you identify and assist students who have the following difficulties representing events as a subset of a sample space using tables and tree diagrams and understanding when conditional probabilities are equal for particular and general situations.

Type: Lesson Plan

Medical Testing:

This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to:

• make sense of a real life situation and decide what math to apply to the problem
• understand and calculate the conditional probability of an event A, given an event B, and interpret the answer in terms of a model
• represent events as a subset of a sample space using tables, tree diagrams, and Venn diagrams
• interpret the results and communicate their reasoning clearly

Type: Lesson Plan

Human Venn Diagram:

This activity is to strengthen students understanding of Venn diagrams, where the class becomes the problem. The class will be able to physically move and see how and why elements belong in each section of the Venn diagram.

Type: Lesson Plan

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

The Titanic 1:

This task asks students to calculate probabilities using information presented in a two-way frequency table.

## Video/Audio/Animation

MIT BLOSSOMS - Taking Walks, Delivering Mail: An Introduction to Graph Theory:

This learning video presents an introduction to graph theory through two fun, puzzle-like problems:"The Seven Bridges of Königsberg" and "The Chinese Postman Problem". Any high school student in a college-preparatory math class should be able to participate in this lesson. Materials needed include: pen and paper for the students; if possible, printed-out copies of the graphs and image that are used in the module; and a blackboard or equivalent. During this video lesson, students will learn graph theory by finding a route through a city/town/village without crossing the same path twice. They will also learn to determine the length of the shortest route that covers all the roads in a city/town/village. To achieve these two learning objectives, they will use nodes and arcs to create a graph and represent a real problem. This video lesson cannot be completed in one usual class period of approximately 55 minutes. It is suggested that the lesson be presented over two class sessions.
