Probability Review Questions

Here are the question from the board that I would like everyone to answer for a discussion tomorrow.
  1. How do I find the probability of an event?
  2. What is the sample space of an event?
  3. What is a probability tree?
  4. How do I use a probability tree to work out the probability of several events?
  5. What is an independent event?
  6. When should I use a probability tree and when should I use a probability table?
  7. What is an event and why would I want to work out it's probability?

Rock-Paper-Scissors Activity

Math 8ers

The tasks for the Rock-Paper-Scissor activity are:

  1. Using your own game data, draw a graph to represent the number of games player A won, the number of games player 2 won and the number of ties.
  2. Using the whole class data, draw a graph to represent the number of games player A won, the number of games player 2 won and the number of ties. If you can calculate the average for the player A's and player B's and ties you will see something interesting!
  3. Write a discussion about what you observe happening in the two graphs, the differences other two graph and why they may differ. Discuss how this relates to the theoretical probability that you worked out on the back of the Rock-Paper-Scissors hand out

Integers Test

Math 8ers!

There will be a integers test on Friday, 15th of February.  Make sure you have a look at your duo tang and check what areas you need to work on.  Study up and be ready on Friday!
