## Workshop Information

Focusing on the core CCSS content for Probability across grades 6 through 9, participants will engage as independent problem solvers and in small collaborative groups with tasks that are classroom appropriate. Assessment practices that optimize student learning are modeled.

**Participants will deepen their own mathematical understandings of a range of mathematical ideas, including:**

- theoretical and experimental probability
- diverse models for determining probability (for example: area models, tree diagrams, organized lists, matrices)
- events, possible outcomes, defining and constructing sample space
- Law of Large Numbers
- computation and interpretation of expected value in simple cases
- inductive and deductive reasoning
- mathematically convincing arguments
