UT.7.SP. STATISTICS AND PROBABILITY (7.SP)
Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population (Standards 7.SP.1–2). Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations (Standards 7.SP.3–4). Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models (Standards 7.SP.5–8).
7.SP.5. Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around ½ indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.
7.SP.8. Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.
7.SP.8.a. Understand that, just as with simple events, the probability of a compound event is the fraction of outcomes in the sample space for which the compound event occurs.
7.SP.8.b. Represent sample spaces for compound events using methods such as organized lists, tables and tree diagrams. For an event described in everyday language (e.g., “rolling double sixes”), identify the outcomes in the sample space which compose the event.
