Maryland Standards

MD.5.0. Knowledge of Probability: Students will use experimental methods or theoretical reasoning to determine probabilities to make predictions or solve problems about events whose outcomes involve random variation.
5.B.1. Theoretical Probability: Determine the probability of an event comprised of no more than 2 independent events.
5.B.1.a. Express the probability of an event as a fraction, a decimal, or a percent (Assessment limit: Use a sample space of 36 to 60 outcomes).
5.B.2. Theoretical Probability Determine the probability of a second event that is dependent on a first event of equally likely outcomes.
5.B.2.a. Express the probability as a fraction, a decimal, or a percent (Assessment limit: Use a sample space of no more than 60 outcomes).
5.C.1. Experimental Probability: Analyze the results of a survey or simulation.
5.C.1.a. Make predictions and express the probability of the results as a fraction, a decimal with no more than 2 decimal places, or a percent (Assessment limit: Use 20 to 500 results).
5.C.2. Experimental Probability: Conduct a probability experiment.
5.C.4. Experimental Probability: Describe the difference between theoretical and experimental probability.
