Probability Unit

Here are the slides to Friday's class when we did a workshop.

We also discussed in class how to answer problems about probability on the provincial exam. We weren't sure if we should answer it as a percentage, decimal, or fraction if the question does not specify what we should leave our answer to. We agreed that we should leave our answer as a fraction because it gives the exact answer rather an approximate answer. Decimals give approximate answers to the nearest ten thousandths and percent answers give answers to the nearest tenths.
