Scribe Post for March 2, 2009.

First thing we did in class, was do number of the day. The number today was 9876.123.

*REMEMBER, NUMBER THE DAY IS ALWAYS HOMEWORK.
Probability
- the likelihood or change of an event occurring.
  • Favorable Outcomes -> what we want to happen.
  • Possible Outcomes -> what might happen.
Probability can be expressed as a:
Then, we had to come up with:

one impossible outcome/event.
eg. for a pig being about to fly.

one certain outcome/event.
eg. having math homework.

one not sure of outcome/event.
eg. the weather tomorrow.


Right after, we had to do this little problem. We had to place the letters above the percent, fractions and decimals to see how likely that event will happen.


a) Flipping a coin and
landing on heads.
b) With one normal six sided die you roll on 8.
c) A boy contains 8 red markers. You reach into the bag and pull out 1 red marker.
d) You spin a spinner with 4 equal sections marked chocolate, fruit, yogurt, and ice cream. What is the probability of the pointer stopping at fruit?
e) A bag contains letters A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H. You pull out a H.
f) A bag has 3 gold marbles and 1 silver marble. You pull out silver marble.
g) The next baby born in Winnipeg is a boy.


Don't forget to: COMMENT! Please explain all the bad and good things about my blog. Please come again. Oh! I also choose
Princess for the next scribe post.

HOMEWORK:

Find the probability of A.

Find the probability of spinning a Q.

Find the probability of spinning a vowel.

Good job Sierra! I really liked your scribepost. Very organized and neat. The only thing I spotted was this: eg. for a pig being about to fly.. I think you mean for a pig being able to fly. HAHA, other than that everything was perfect! (:

april43 said...

OH, and I think you also forgot the "of" in number 'of' the day.. So yeah, just remember to look over your work.

Good Job! You explained everything well. I noticed 1 mistake. The eg. for a impossible event, for a pig being about to fly. It should be for a pig being able to fly. You also should've used a bit more colours.
