7-SP7

Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to observed frequencies; if the agreement is not good, explain possible sources of the discrepancy.


a. Develop a uniform probability model by assigning equal probability to all outcomes, and use the model to determine probabilities of events. [7-SP7a]
  • Example: If a student is selected at random from a class, find the probability that Jane will be selected and the probability that a girl will be selected.
b. Develop a probability model (that may not be uniform) by observing frequencies in data generated from a chance process. [7-SP7b]
  • Example: Find the approximate probability that a spinning penny will land heads up or that a tossed paper cup will land open-end down. Do the outcomes for the spinning penny appear to be equally likely based on the observed frequencies?

My Humble Opinion
This has moved down from 8th grade and has increased in rigor. Instead of students simply using a probability model, they are now being asked to develop a model. This is taught very thoroughly in the AMSTI unit What Do You Expect.
