ab: This book assists high school teachers in honing their studentsâ€™ thinking
by introducing them to two approaches to probability and exploring both
approaches in real-world contexts. The first approach, which interprets
probability as relative frequency over the long run, uses actual or
simulated data from many experiments to arrive at empirical
probabilities. The second approach analyzes outcomes abstractly to
arrive at theoretical probabilities. The supplemental CD-ROM features
interactive electronic activities, master copies of handouts, and
additional readings. Topics: Probability as long run, sample spac,
expected valuees, independence and conditional probability, probability
models and distributions. Contents of the CD-ROM: Table of Standards
and Expectations, Data Analysis and Probability, Pre-K-12, Readings
from Publications of the NCTM.
