## Checks for Understanding (Formative/Summative Assessment)

Probability - Understand that the probability of an event is a number between zero and one that expresses the likelihood of its occurrence. 0606.5.2 Ratio - Identify the probability of an event as the ratio of the number of its actual occurrences to the total number of its possible occurrences. 0606.5.3 Expressing - Express probabilities in different ways. 0606.5.4 Odds - Understand the difference between probability and odds. 0606.5.5 Situations - Analyze a situation that involves probability of an independent event. 0606.5.6 Estimate - Estimate the probability of simple and compound events through experimentation or simulation. 0606.5.7 Calculate - Apply procedures to calculate the probability of complimentary events.

0606.5.8 Graphical - Connect data sets and their graphical representations (such as bar graphs, circle, graphs, and stem-and-leaf plots). 0606.5.9 Sample Space - Determine the sample space for a given situation. 0606.5.10 Random - Distinguish between a random and nonrandom sample. 0606.5.11 Center - Select the appropriate measure of center to describe a data set. 0606.5.12 Population - Predict the characteristics of a population based on the analysis of sample data.

SPI 0606.5.1 Theoretical - Determine the theoretical probability of simple and compound events in familiar contexts. SPI 0606.5.2 Misleading - Identify features of graphs that may be misleading. SPI 0606.5.3 Biased - Determine whether or not a sample is biased. National Library of Virtual ManipulativesData Analysis & Probability [Grades 6-8 ]
