# Ch 13: 4th Grade Math: Probability & Statistics

### About This Chapter

## 4th Grade Math: Probability & Statistics - Chapter Summary

Give your 4th graders' classroom study on probability and statistics a boost with the fun lessons and quick quizzes in this chapter. Lessons break down large concepts, like probability of different events, into small chunks, making it easier for young students to retain key info. Videos all come with self-assessment quizzes so 4th graders can make sure they understand experimental probability, mean and median or math combinations before moving on to the next lesson.

## Chapter Lessons and Objectives

Lesson | Objective |
---|---|

Introduction to Probability | Students get an overview of probability concepts and see the formula that's used to find the probability of an event. |

Probability of Independent and Dependent Events | The lesson shows how these concepts differ and provides the steps to calculate each type. |

Experimental Probability | Instructors show how outcomes and probabilities of experiments are predicted using die rolls. |

Probability of Compound Events | Students use examples to find probabilities for compound events. |

Mutually Exclusive Events and Non-mutually Exclusive Events | This lesson teaches the differences between these two events and methods to decide if two events are mutually or non-mutually exclusive. |

Math Combinations: Formula and Example Problems | The video shows why math combinations are important in counting and presents the formula for math combinations. |

How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range | Students learn the process for calculating mean, mode, median and range. |

### 1. Probability of Independent and Dependent Events

Sometimes probabilities need to be calculated when more than one event occurs. These types of compound events are called independent and dependent events. Through this lesson, we will look at some real-world examples of how to calculate these probabilities.

### 2. Math Combinations: Formula and Example Problems

Combinations are an arrangement of objects where order does not matter. In this lesson, the coach of the Wildcats basketball team uses combinations to help his team prepare for the upcoming season.

### 3. How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range

Measures of central tendency can provide valuable information about a set of data. In this lesson, explore how to calculate the mean, median, mode and range of any given data set.
