Unit Title
Counting Principles
Unit Number
6
Course
Finite Math
Content Area
Math
Description
Students will use counting principles (combinations and permutations) to determine the number of possible outcomes and the probability of an event occurring.
Timeline
2 Week(s)
Enduring Understandings
Counting principles are used to evaluate the outcome of decisions.
Probability is used to make inferences and predictions.


Essential Questions
How do you calculate the number of possibilities in a given situation?
How do you determine the difference between permutations and combinations and how do evaluate each?
How is the outcome of  a given situation affected based on whether repetition ( replacement vs. non-replacement) is allowed?

Apply the Addition Rule, P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A and B), and interpret the answer in terms of the model.
  
Apply the general multiplication rule in the uniform probability model, P(A and B) = P(A)P(B|A)=P(B)P(A|B), and interpret the answer in terms of the model.
