Math: Lesson and homework for Monday, March 16
Continue Combinations and Permutations in Chapter 10.
When we come back, we will have a Chapter 10 test which will include scatter plots and quartiles.
1. Permutations can be indicated with an exclamation point to the right of the number. It is called a factorial (p. 515). With permutations, order is important, so it is always the larger group. With combinations, order is NOT important.
2. The procedure in finding a combination in to make a fraction.
Please reread page 516 in your text. However many places you need of the original number is the divisor factorial. This will leave a smaller number, but that is OK since order is not important.
3. Your homework for Monday was the top of page 518.Do the odds for Tuesday and check your work in the back of the book.
In addition, add word problems 41 through 48.
Mark this Assignment #1 and staple all papers together for each assignment. YOU MUST SHOW YOUR WORK. I will not accept "magic" answers.
Vocabulary: Sadlier #11. SInce I have your orange books, I will give you the list and you can find definitions in either a book dictionary or use Dictionary.com.

Math: we have to move forward in Unit 10. Your new assignment is to read 10-9 Probability of Independent and Dependent Events. Now are going to add the word "and" to our favorable outcomes. The word "independent" just means the two events do not depend on each other. When there is the word "and", the probabilities are multiplied together (see bottom of p. 531. When you have read 10-9 at least twice, try the IXL support: DD.10 and DD.11. Keep up with IXL! Your class is amazing. Two 7th graders have done over 1,000 problems!! Victoria Le and Alyssa. Yea for you. So that is a challenge.
Think about devising a Probability Independent event with a deck of cards. This could be fun. We'll bring cards to school when we get back.
Vocabulary: There is no extra vocabulary assignment for Friday. Complete your stories, and remember the requirements: Word, 12-font, double-spaced, 1-inch margins, and two-page minimum. Email me the finished product.
No homework for the weekend.
NOTE: For those who were having trouble with p. 522, here is a mini-lesson:
Probability and Odds are different.
Probability is the number of favorable outcomes over the total number possible.
Probability of getting a 5 on a die is 1/6
Probability of NOT getting a 5 on a die is 5/6
Odds of getting a 5 on a die is 1/6 divided by 5/6 =
1/6 times 6/5 = 1:5
(Success over failures)
Odd of NOT getting a die is 5/6 divided by 1/6 =
5/6 times 6/1 = 5:1
(Failures over success)
see definition at bottom of p. 520
