Problem: A spinner has 4 equal sectors colored yellow, blue, green and red. What are the chances of landing on blue after spinning the spinner? What are the chances of landing on red? Solution: The chances of landing on blue are 1 in 4, or one fourth. The chances of landing on red are 1 in 4, or one fourth. This problem asked us to find some probabilities involving a spinner. Let's look at some definitions and examples from the problem above. Definition Example An experiment is a situation involving chance or probability that leads to results called outcomes. In the problem above, the experiment is spinning the spinner. An outcome is the result of a single trial of an experiment. The possible outcomes are landing on yellow, blue, green or red. An event is one or more outcomes of an experiment. One event of this experiment is landing on blue. Probability is the measure of how likely an event is. The probability of landing on blue is one fourth.
In order to measure probabilities, mathematicians have devised the following formula for finding the probability of an event. Probability Of An Event P(A) = The Number Of Ways Event A Can Occur The Total Number Of Possible Outcomes
The probability of event A is the number of ways event A can occur divided by the total number of possible outcomes.

In a world as crazy as this one, it ought to be easy to find something that happens solely by chance. It isn't. Kevin McKeen

Discover, January, 1981
American Heritage Dictionary defines Probability Theory as the branch of Mathematics that studies the likelihood of occurrence of random events in order to predict the behavior of defined systems. Starting with this definition, it would (probably :-) be right to conclude that the Probability Theory, being a branch of Mathematics, is an exact, deductive science that studies uncertain quantities related to random events. This might seem to be a strange marriage of mathematical certainty and uncertainty of randomness. On a second thought, though, most people will agree that a newly conceived baby has a 50-50 chance (exact but, likely, inaccurate estimate) to be, for example, a girl or a boy, for that matter. Interestingly, a recent book by

For a review of concepts, see Permutations and Combinations. The study of probability helps us figure out the likelihood of something happening. For instance, when you roll a pair of dice, you might ask how likely you are to roll a seven. In math, we call the "something happening" an "event." The probability of the occurrence of an event can be expressed as a fraction or a decimal from to 1. Events that are unlikely will have a probability near 0, and events that are likely to happen have probabilities near 1.* In any probability problem, it is very important to identify all the different outcomes that could occur. For instance, in the question about the dice, you must figure out all the different ways the dice could land, and all the different ways you could roll a seven. * Note that when you're dealing with an infinite number of possible events, an event that could conceivably happen might have probability zero. Consider the example of picking a random number between 1 and 10 - what is the probability that you'll pick 5.0724? It's zero, but it could happen.

Probability Probability is the branch of mathematics that studies the possible outcomes of given events together with the outcomes' relative likelihoods and distributions. In common usage, the word "probability" is used to mean the chance that a particular event (or set of events) will occur expressed on a linear scale from (impossibility) to 1 (certainty), also expressed as a percentage between and 100%. The analysis of events governed by probability is called statistics There are several competing interpretations of the actual "meaning" of probabilities. Frequentists view probability simply as a measure of the frequency of outcomes (the more conventional interpretation), while Bayesians treat probability more subjectively as a statistical procedure that endeavors to estimate parameters of an underlying distribution based on the observed distribution. A properly normalized function that assigns a probability "density" to each possible outcome within some interval is called a probability function (or probability distribution function), and its cumulative value (integral for a continuous distribution or sum for a discrete distribution) is called a

14. Statistics Glossary - Probability
The probability of an event can be thought of as its longrun relative frequency when the experiment is carried out many times.
Outcome Sample Space Event Relative Frequency ... Index of all entries
An outcome is the result of an experiment or other situation involving uncertainty. The set of all possible outcomes of a probability experiment is called a sample space.
Sample Space The sample space is an exhaustive list of all the possible outcomes of an experiment. Each possible result of such a study is represented by one and only one point in the sample space, which is usually denoted by S.
Experiment Rolling a die once:
Experiment Tossing a coin:
Experiment Measuring the height (cms) of a girl on her first day at school:
Sample space S = the set of all possible real numbers

Event An event is any collection of outcomes of an experiment. Formally, any subset of the sample space is an event. Any event which consists of a single outcome in the sample space is called an elementary or simple event. Events which consist of more than one outcome are called compound events.
Set theory is used to represent relationships among events. In general, if A and B are two events in the sample space S, then
(A union B) = 'either A or B occurs or both occur'
(A intersection B) = 'both A and B occur'
(A is a subset of B) = 'if A occurs, so does B'

At the end of a rainbow lies a pot of gold. When Finnegan took us there we found sparkling gold coins. Those coins intrigued us. We began flipping them and noticed sometimes they landed on heads-sometimes on tails. Finnegan had us record our flips. He told us we were collecting data. We were fascinated with Collecting data allows students to experience what is to be a scientist. By examining it and then interpreting it, students work at a much higher level than merely reading about it. We designed this section of our site with the above in mind. There are online activities for students to examine (and yes, adults can play too) as well as ideas and activities for teachers to use in their classrooms. We hope you'll enjoy these projects. Introductory Lessons
  • How to Collect Data
    There's an art to collecting data. Spend a few minutes reviewing with Finnegan how to go about getting your data.
  • What to Do with Data
    Graphing is an excellent way to organize your data so you see quickly what your data are doing.
  • Interpret Data
    What are your data trying to show you?
