              Probabilities That Add Up to One

              Students learn how mutually exclusive and exhaustive events are represented in a Venn diagram and probabilities that add up to one.  As learning progresses they use mutually exclusive events to calculate the probability of an event not happening.
              Differentiated Learning Objective
              • All students should be able to identify mutually exclusive events.
              • Most students should be able to understand that the probabilities of all possible outcomes sum to 1.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the probability of an event not happening.
