AIM: How can you determine the relative frequency of an outcome?
HW: What Do You Expect: pp.17-18 #7-8; p.21 #21-23
Kalvin decides to use tiles with the letters A - Z to help choose his cereal each morning. If vowels represent Cocoa Blast and consonants represent Healthy Nut Flakes, should he expect to eat both cereals an equal amount in a month? Explain.
Classwork: Still working within the context of Kalvin and his cereal, the class looked at another situation where Kalvin decided to toss two coins. If the coins matched (two heads or two tails), then Kalvin got his cereal. If the coins did not match, then he needed to eat his mother's cereal. Students worked with their desk partners to find the relative frequency of each outcome. We then looked at the class results and saw that the probabilities hovered around 50%.
