Precalculus and Advanced Topics Module 5

Precalculus lesson 19 graphs

In this module, students build on their understanding of probability developed in previous grades.  In Topic A the multiplication rule for independent events introduced in Algebra II is generalized to a rule that can be used to calculate probability where two events are not independent.  Students are also introduced to three techniques for counting outcomes.  Topic B presents information related to random variables and discrete probability distributions.  Topic C is a capstone topic for this module, where students use what they have learned about probability and expected value to analyze strategies and make decisions in a variety of contexts.

The student materials consist of the student pages for each lesson in Module 5.

The copy ready materials are a collection of the module assessments, lesson exit tickets and fluency exercises from the teacher materials.
