### Constructing Sample Spaces using lists and tree diagrams

Lesson 6 (4th 6 Weeks)

TEKS 6.9A

Probability
• The chance of something happening
Event
• Something may happen
Outcome
• One of the possible events in a probability situation.
Sampling
• An experiment that is conducted to predict probability
Sample Space
• The set of ALL possible outcomes for an event
• Ways to display the sample space:
• List all possible outcomes
• Table
• Tree diagram
You can also use multiplication to find the total number of possible outcomes.
• EX:
• 2 types of bread x 3 sandwich fillings = 6 different sandwiches that can be made
Ex: List
• On track and field day the students have a choice of either a tuna sandwich, turkey sandwich, or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. They can have water or milk to drink. Create a list that shows all the possible combinations that the students can have for lunch.

EX: Tree Diagram
• There are 6 colored tiles in a bag: 2 blue tiles, 2 red tiles, and 2 yellow tiles. With looking, you draw 2 colored tiles out of the bag at the same time. What are the possible color combinations of the 2 colored tiles drawn?
