Grade 7 Mathematics Module 5, Topic B, Overview

Studying for Test

In Topic B, students move to comparing probabilities from simulations to computed probabilities that are based on theoretical models (7.SP.C.6, 7.SP.C.7).  They calculate probabilities of compound events using lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulations (7.SP.C.8).  They learn to use probabilities to make decisions and to determine whether or not a given probability model is plausible (7.SP.C.7).  The Mid-Module Assessment follows Topic B.
