# 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.
