              Calculating a Probability from Sample Space Diagrams

              Students learn how to create a sample space diagram to find the probability of two or more events.

              As learning progresses students are challenged to find the events when given a partially completed sample space diagram.

              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to complete a sample space diagram given two sets of outcomes.
              • Most students should be able to calculate a theoretical probability using a sample space diagram.
              • Some students should be able to determine a set of events given a sample space diagram.
