Probability Thursday

Hello parents and students, 

Wow, what a change in the weather and here we thought winter was over! But this did not keep the excitement down for the students! 

We began the day by working on math and taking up our answers in round discussion. In the new lesson for today we covered 3 topics, here are the notes in case the students need help. 

1. Theoretical and Experimental Probability
Theoretical Probability: The outcome you expect (favourable). 
ex. theoretical probability of getting heads is 1 out of 2 (1/2). 
Experimental Probability: The actual outcome (the number of times it occurs). 
ex. in class, the experimental probability was 6 out of 10. 

2. Probability as Fractions 
**Always start by making the fraction true. 
- you may use multiples as long as you multiple by the same number! 

3. Probability as Percent **it helps to go in order
1. Use words:
- She have a 3 out of 1 chance of getting orange flavoured water. So taking orange in unlikely.
2. Use a fraction: 
-Probability of getting orange 3/15 or its multiple 1/5 
3. Use decimals:
-1/5 (you need to multiple 5 x 20 to get 100, so then you multiply the numerator by 20 as well) = 2/100 or 0.20 
4. Use percent: 
0.2 (x100) = 20% 

For UOI, the students worked on their projects. Here are some pictures of the progress.
