Students recognize the difference between outcomes of a chance event that are equally likely and those that are not.
What to look forBy the end of this lesson, students should be able to use their experimental results and the theoretical probabilities to explain why the events in a chance process are or are not equally likely.
Are the outcomes in the spinner equally likely? Why or why not?
No, because the probability of getting each color is not the same: the probability of getting a red is (3/6), blue is (2/6) and green is (1/6).
