# Teaching Outlines

## Concept #1 Introduction to Probability

### Learning objectives

- Understand that events occur with different frequencies
- Different events have different likelihoods (likely, unlikely, equally likely, not equally likely)
- Understand the idea of sample space and universe of events

### Notes for teachers

- To understand likelihood of events happening
- The objective here is not numerical computation but to understand events, likelihoods and vocabulary of description. The activity can be done in groups/ pairs. Not a whole class activity.
- Compare the results across groups.
- To develop an understanding of what chance means?

### Activities

## Concept #2 Different types of events

### Learning objectives

- Understand elementary and compound events and construction of such events
- Independent events
