MDM4U Independent vs. Dependent Events 2017-10-04

A compound event is comprised of a sequence of two or more single events. Those single events are independent if the probabilities of later events are not affected by whether earlier events occurred. If they are affected, the events are dependent.

For example, when flipping a coin then rolling a die, the probability of rolling a 5 or 6 does not depend on the outcome of the coin flip. These events are independent.

When drawing two cards in a row from a shuffled deck of cards, the probability of drawing a 5 as the second card depends on the outcome of the first card drawn. If the first card is a 5, there is a reduced probability of drawing a 5 as the second card. These events are dependent.

No homework tonight – we’ll learn the notation and do practice work tomorrow.

MPM1D Review! 2017-10-04

We’re at the end of the first unit, evaluating and simplifying expressions. I handed out this review task today:

MPM1D Unit 1 Review

Spend up to 20 minutes on that tonight if you’re not already finished. I will be collecting it.

Tomorrow (Thursday) I’ll be showing you some strategies for studying for math.

Friday you’ll have a test during class. You can use a calculator but not a phone during the test.
