Probability Experiments with Dice and Cards

Have you wondered how real probabity experiments take place? This lesson presents you the opportunity to work with dice and cards to calculate multiplication of probabilities and conditional probability. Dice are rolled and cards are shuffled and drawn. You will be able to work them directly on the screen.

Lesson's Glossary

Combination: Any arrangement in which order is not important.

Dependent events: The outcome of a dependent event is affected by the outcome of the previous event.

Independent Events: If an outcome doesn’t affect the outcome of a following event, then the two events are independent.

Factorial! n! represents the product of all the whole numbers from n to 1. n! is the product of all the whole numbers from n down to 1 - used in probability.

Mutually exclusive events: Events with no common outcomes.

Mutually inclusive events: Events with  common outcomes.

Outcomes: The possible results of a probability experiment.

Permutation: Any arrangement in which order is important.

Probability: The possibility of an event to happen. The probability of getting an even number when rolling a 6 sided dice is 50%.

Sample Space: All possible ways an event may happen.
