The Sample Space is the set of all possible outcomes in a probability experiment.

Let S = { 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10}

then n(S)=10

Find n(A) if A = {the whole numbers between 5 and 12}

n(A) = 6

sinceA = {6,7,8,9,10,11}

An Event consists of a set of outcomes of a probability experiment.

The probability, P, of Event (E) with sample space, S,

is defined as the ratio of n(E) to n(S)

i.e.,

P(E) =

A bag of marbles has 3 red and 2 green marbles in it.

n(S)

= 5

E= pull out a green marble

Find the probability of pulling out a red marble if you put your hand in the bag and pull out one marble. Find P(E).

What is the highest a probability

value can be?

What is the lowest a probability value can be?

In fact, 0 ≤ p ≤ 1

Or, if you prefer to use percents:

Every probability is between 0% and 100%.

I have come to a frightening conclusion. I am the decisive element in the classroom. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanized or de-humanized."
