Examples, solutions, worksheets, videos, and lessons to help Grade 7 students understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.

- I can classify the outcome of any single event as impossible, unlikely, likely, or certain
- I can explain that probability is expressed as a number between zero and one.
- I can explain that numbers closer to one mean that the event has greater probability of happening.
- I can explain that numbers closer to zero mean that the event is less likely to happen.
- I can explain that numbers closer to 0.5 mean that the event has an equal likelihood of happening.
