Unit 11 – Probability

Probability, or the measurement of chance, is a challenging topic for students and teachers alike.  For the first time, the disparate topics of combinatorial probability and binomial probability occur in the same course.  The development in this unit first seeks to familiarize students with counting techniques and then use these techniques for probability calculations.  Then, binomial probability is emphasized in two lessons, including problems involving at least and at most scenarios.  Finally, the binomial expansion is discussed.
