              Comparing the Probability of Events

              Students learn about comparing the probability of events using fractions on a probability scale.At the start of the lesson students recap writing a probability as a fraction.  In the development stage they learn how to place events along a probability scale to compare their likelihoods.  The end of lesson is used to assess their progress using mini-whiteboards.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to place probabilities written as keywords along a probability scale
              • Most students should be able to use probabilities and the probability scale to compare the likelihood of events happening.
              • Some students should be able to compare the probabilities of two events using equivalent fractions.
