Lesson Plan: Probability of Simple Events Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to find the probability of a simple event.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • calculate the probability of a simple event, given the number of times the event occurs and the total number of outcomes,
  • calculate the probability of a simple event, given the number of times various events occur,
  • calculate the number of times an event occurs, given the probability of the event and the total number of outcomes,
  • find the number of times an event occurs and its probability of occurring, given a particular scenario.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • the concepts of sample space and outcomes,
  • dealing with fractions, primes, multiples, and factors (for questions involving these).

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • the probability of an event not occurring (the complement),
  • the probability of compound events,
  • experimental probability.
