Further investigations:

Find baseball statistics for your students favorite team. Ask her to calculate the probability that the catcher will get at least 2 hits in his next 3 at-bats if he got a hit on the rst at-bat. Repeat for other players. If you play the Lottery, explain to your student what boxed and straight mean and ask him to calculate the expected winnings each way for playing Cash 3 10 times.

Students will:

Calculate probabilities based on angles and area models Compute simple permutations and combinations Calculate, display, and interpret summary statistics Calculate and interpret expected values Use simulations and statistics as tools to answer probability questions.

Math I - 4 of 6

Classroom Cases:

1. A traveling carnival has a spinner game like the one shown. $7 $1 Based on the spinner, calculate the following: $2 a. What is the probability of obtaining $1 on the rst spin? $8 b. Are you equally likely to land on $1 and $6? c. What are your chances of obtaining at least $5 on one spin? $4 d. If you spin twice, what is the likelihood that you will have a $6 sum of at most $4? e. Given that you landed on $1 on your rst spin, what is the $3 $5 probability that the sum of your two spins will be at most $4? f. If you spin the spinner once, how much money would you expect to receive? How much money would you be willing to pay to play this game? Case Closed - Evidence: a. The spinner has 8 sections but they are not the same size. The larger ones are twice as big as the smaller sections. Since $1 is in a larger section, its area represents 2/12 of the circle. The probability of obtaining $1 then is 2/12. b. No. $1 and $6 are in different size sections so their probabilities are different. c. P(at least $5) = P($5)+ P($6)+ P($7)+ P($8) = 2/12+ 1/12+ 1/12+ 2/12 = 6/12 = 1/2. d. P(at most $4 on two spins) = P($1 and $1) + P($1 and $2) + P($1 and $3) + P($2 and $1) + P($2 and $2) + P( $3 and $1) = (2/12 2/12) + (2/12 1/12) + (2/12 1/12) + (1/12 2/12) + (1/12 1/12) + (1/12 2/12) = 13/144. e. The condition that the rst spin lands on $1 reduces the sample space to {($1, $1), ($1, $2), ($1, $3)}. So, P(sum is less than or equal to $4 | $1 on rst spin) = P($1) + P($2) + P ($3) = 2/12 + 1/12 + 1/12 = 4/12. Using the formula, P(sum < $4| $1 on rst spin) = (P(sum < $4 and $1 on rst spin)/P($1 on rst spin) = 2/12 2/12 + 2/12 1/12 + 2/12 1/12 = 4/12. 2/12 f. The expected value would be $1(2/12) + $2(1/12) + $3(1/12) + $4(2/12) + $5(2/12) + $6(1/12) + $7(1/12) + $8(2/12) = $4.50. Since I only expect to win $4.50 on 1 spin, I would not be willing to risk more than that amount to play. 2. Suppose you take the drivers permit test and randomly guess the answers. If there are 30 questions with 5 answer choices per question, what is the probability that you just pass the test (make exactly 70%)? Case Closed - Evidence: Since there are 5 choices for each question, the probability of guessing the correct answer on one question is 1/5 and the probability of missing that answer is 4/5. To make a passing grade, I must answer correctly 70% of 30 questions or 21 questions. There are 30C21 or 14307150 ways I can choose 21 correct answers. The probability for making a 70 by just guessing will be 14307150 (1/5)21 (4/5)9 = 4.03 x 10-9. 3. The star player on your basketball team has an 85% free throw percentage and is in a one-andone situation 200 times during the season. How many times can she be expected to score zero points? One point? Two points? second shot Case Closed - Evidence: As the area model shows, the probability of her making first shot the rst shot and the second shot would be .85 .85 =.7225. 85% That would happen about 145 times. The probability that she makes the rst shot and misses the second one is .85 .15 = .1275. That would occur about 25 times. The probability that she misses the rst shot and makes 15% no points would be .15 1.00 = .15 which is likely to happen 30 times during the season.

85% 15%

Terminology:

Combination: A collection of objects in which the order of objects does not matter. Conditional probability: The chance that a second event will occur given that another event has occurred. Dependent events: Two events in which the outcome of one affects the probability of the other. Expected value: A predicted value for a distribution based on the probability and value of the events in the distribution. Factorial: The product of all the integers from 1 up to the integer in question. 5! = 12345 = 120 Mean absolute deviation: Average of the absolute values of the deviations. Mutually exclusive events: Two events that have no outcomes in common. Outcome: A possible result. Parameter: A numerical value that describes the population. Permutation: Each different arrangement of a set of objects. Summary statistics: Measures of the center (mean, median) and of the spread (quartiles, interquartile range)of a set of data. Variability: A measure of the spread or dispersion of a data distribution.

Clues:

Probability started from the analysis of games, and this is still the usual start in courses on the subject because games provide a context for probability that is not complicated by other issues. Nonetheless, probability is omnipresent in modern thought. Any kind of decision making under uncertainty has the basic ideas of probability lurking somewhere.
