How Do You Use a Tree Diagram to Count the Number of Outcomes in a Sample Space?
Deciding what to wear can be difficult, but it helps if you know your options. Use a tree diagram to solve word problems like the one in this video! Class members can watch and learn how to find and count possible outcomes (or outfits). Play this video as a complement to your lesson or ask pupils to view it at home.

Investigation - What's in the Bag?
If you have or can create a set of tiles, numbered one through eight, then you can implement this hands-on lesson about probability models. Individuals draw a tile from a bag, record its number, and then return it to the bag. They predict the probability of the product of three draws equalling an odd number.
