###### TOPIC 2 – PROBABILITY

INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS

1. Coins

2. Dice

3. Source information sheet on events.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of the lesson, students should be able to:

1. discuss the occurrence of chance events in everyday life.

2. determine the probability of certain events.

3. apply the occurrence of chance events/probabilities in everyday life.

CONTENTS OF THE LESSON

###### FOCUS LESSONS 2

1. Occurrence of chance events in everyday life.

2. Probability of chance events.

LESSON PRESENTATION

Teacher’s Activities,

1. Leads students to give examples of chance events in everyday life  e.g The chance or event that rain will fall in December.

2. Leads students to perform experiments using coin and die.

3. Guides students to calculate the probability of the resulting experiments.

4. Guides students to analyze statistical data with the use of probability such as mortality rate etc.

5. Guides students to apply the probability occurrence of chance events in everyday life.

Student’s Activities,

List examples of chance events in everyday life.

2. Perform experiments using coin and die.

3. Calculates the probability of the resulting experiments.

4. Analyze statistical data with the use of probability.

5. Mention the application of probability in everyday life.

LESSON EVALUATION
