The Probability unit is divided into five main topics covered over approximately half the term.

- Basic Probability
- Likelihood
- Fair and Unfair Games
- Theoretical vs. Experimental Probability
- Compound Events

## Resources and Study Tools

**Basic Probability - pg. 400 - 411**

__Khan Academy Video explaining an example__

**Likelihood - pg. 408 (description), 410 (practice problems)**

Below is an image of the likelihood scale we use in class. This scale is used to

*describe*the likelihood of an event. We use this when we are discussing probability to someone who is not well versed in the material or when we do not know the exact probability.

**Fair and Unfair Games - pg. 407**

__Actuarial Foundation article__describing an activity with fair and unfair games. This is a great review for your tests and quizzes!

**Theoretical vs. Experimental Probability - pg. 412 - 419**

__Band Tour Probability Game__- See if you band can make it big touring the USA! Use the theoretical probabilities given to make your tour schedule.

__Interactive Experimental Probability Generator__- Input the number of trials you conduct your experiment and the computer will generate your experimental results to compare to your theoretical results.

**Compound Events - pg. 420 - 435**Fundamental Counting Principle - pg. 423 - 427

__FCP Video__

Tree Diagrams - pg. 422 - 427

**Independent vs. Dependent Events - pg. 428 - 435**

What is the difference?

__Ask Dr. Math__

Independent Events - pg. 428 - 435
