TODAY, during math class we did probability. Now, in the beginning we had to tell Mr.Harbeck what we already know about probability. These are the kind of things that we said..

-probability trees.

AFTER, we did that we talked about the types of probability. Such as,

Theoretical Probability

-what the math says SHOULD happen.

TP= favourable outcome over total possible outcome.
A COIN P(h) = head over head/tails.
= one half
So, There is a 50% probability by that the flip will be a head.

Experimental Probability
EP= favourable outcome over number of events
So, what we did was we flipped a coin about 11 times and we put those things in a ratio type form which looked like this..

P(h)= 7 over 12
= 0.583
= 58.3%
The experimental probability of a head was 58.3%

*to achieve a # closer to theoretical probability, you need to do more experiments.
AFTER, we did that we started talking about Probability Trees,
A COIN= H,T 2 Outcomes
A DICE= 1,2,3,4,5,6 6 Outcomes

P(t , >) = 3 over 12
= 25%
There is a 25% probability that there will be...
So, that's pretty much it for today's math class ( May 10, 2010 )
For homework we have to do the table and the homework book ( page 124, 125, 126. )
Thaanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it! Remember to COMMENT. ;)

Good job Raquel! You pretty much mentioned everything that was talked about in class. Good job adding the diagrams also!
