Guiding Concepts
In this unit, you will investigate chance processes and develop, use, and
evaluate probability models. At the end of the unit, you should be
able to:
 Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between
0 and 1.
 Compare probabilities from a model to observe frequencies.
 Approximate or predict the probability of a chance event by collecting
data and observing the frequency of the event.
 Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events.
 Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree
diagrams, and simulation.
