Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about your classmates’ diagrams and solutions.

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • How did you decide which events are independent events and which are dependent events?
  • How does your representation of the sample space for dependent events differ from your representation of independent events?
  • How would the probability differ if the two selections were independent versus dependent?
