This standard is derived from Achievement Objective S8.4, Investigate situations that involve elements of chance.

- calculating probabilities of independent, combined and conditional events

Students should be able to:

- Understand true probability vs model estimates vs experimental estimates
- Randomness, independence mutually exclusive events, conditional probability
- Probability distribution tables and graphs
- Two way tables, probability tress, venn diagrams

This standard requires students to understand the relationship between true probability, model estimates, and experimental estimates.
