Teaching Outlines

Concept #1 Introduction to Probability

Learning objectives

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


Notes for teachers

  1. To understand likelihood of events happening
  2. 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.
  3. Compare the results across groups.
  4. To develop an understanding of what chance means?

Concept #2 Different types of events

Learning objectives

  1. Understand elementary and compound events and construction of such events
    1. Complementary events
    2. Independent events / Mutually exclusive events
