## Standard 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.

### Topic

B. Theoretical Probability

#### Indicator

• 1. Determine the probability of one simple event comprised of equally likely outcomes
##### Objectives
1. Express the probability of an event as a fraction.
2. Express the probability of an event as a decimal
###### Assessment limit: Use a sample space of 10, 20, 25, or 50 outcomes
3. Express the probability of an event as a percent

### Topic

C. Experimental Probability

#### Indicator

##### Objective
1. Make predictions and express the experimental probability as a fraction, a decimal, or a percent

#### Indicator

Note: Highlighted assessment limits will be tested in the no calculator section of MSA. In the assessment limit, (0-10) or (-10 to 10) means all numbers in the problem or the answer will fall within the range of 0 to 10 (including endpoints) or -10 to 10 (including endpoints), respectively. All content standards are tested in MSA but not all objectives. Objectives that have an assessment limit are tested on MSA. Objectives without an assessment limit are not tested on MSA.
