Ch 48: 6th-8th Grade Math: Probability

Students in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades watch the fun video lessons in this chapter to explore probability formulas and concepts. Middle schoolers can use the chapter tools to study and then check their understanding of probability by taking lesson quizzes and the chapter exam.

6th-8th Grade Math: Probability - Chapter Summary

This chapter reinforces the probability terms and concepts that 6th, 7th and 8th graders learn about in math class. If your middle schooler needs to improve in this area, the entertaining and succinct video lessons could be just what he or she needs to make progress. The instructors discuss independent and dependent events, probability formulas, experimental probability and the fundamental counting principle. Example problems allow students to apply what they've learned about exclusive events, permutations, combinations and more. Your middle schooler has access to not only the videos but also lesson transcripts, self-assessment quizzes and a chapter exam. Students needing additional support can send questions to lesson instructors as well.
