Ch 20: Praxis Mathematics: Sequences, Series & Probability

Let us help you learn about the probability of events and how to calculate it. Through video lessons and self-assessment quizzes you will be prepared to answer probability questions on the Praxis Mathematics test.

Praxis Mathematics: Probability - Chapter Summary

The video lessons in this chapter will help you understand the concept of conditional probability and independent and dependent events. You will learn to use two-way tables to decide if events are independent and also to estimate conditional probabilities. Another lesson deals with applying the concepts of conditional probability and independence to real life situations. Topics covered in these videos include:

• Conditional probabilities and independence
• Calculating simple conditional probabilities
• Probability of independent and dependent events
• Probability of simple, compound and complementary events

As you are led through the video lessons by expert instructors, you will acquire the knowledge of probabilities needed for success on the Praxis I Mathematics test. The lessons teach you what you need in a fun manner.

Objectives of the Praxis Mathematics: Probability Course

Passing the Praxis Mathematics is required by many states as a condition for certification at the secondary school level. The test consists of 50 multiple-choice questions. The questions with information taught in the Probability chapter are part of the test's probability section. The Praxis Mathematics test contains two or three questions on probability, comprising 4-6% of the total questions on the test.

Each question on the Praxis Mathematics test presents a problem and gives you four choices for answers. You can use the self-assessment quizzes that accompany each lesson to check what you've learned and get used to the types of questions that will be asked on the test.
