### Probability

Probability is the chance of an event happening.

Probability = favorable outcomes over possible outcomes.

It can be expressed as a ratio, a fraction, or a percent.
Outcome- Is one possible result of a probability experiment.

Favorable outcomes- Is a successful result of a probability experiment.

Check this out:

If you roll a die, the probability of you getting 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 is all the same.
They're all equal.

The probability of getting each color is unequal

1. Nice job Suzie! You finally made a scribe to Friday's math class. Haha. The last part of your scribe, was from today's math class. I think that would have been someone else's scribe. But, everything else is great. :)

2. GOOD JOB SUZIE!! The scribe was a little late but at least you did it. Anyways, I liked that you gave the definitions of the important words such as favourable outcomes. But I think that when you said that probability can be expressed in ratios, fractions and percents you could've gave some examples. This would help us understand what you're talking about more. Some of the colours you used were a little bright so you should be aware of that and use less bright colours next time. I also think that you could've included some pictures, diagrams, maybe even a video or link. Other then that, great job! :)

3. Good job Suzie! You explained what did in class on Friday but just like what Maya said the last part was from todays and not Fridays. You could have found a video so it could explain more about probability. Again good job!

4. Good job Suzie! You explained what we did in class well. The colours that you used were okay... For the last part though you should have explained it better. And you should have put a link or video to let us understand it more... either than that good job!! :P

5. Nice job Suzie!:) You explained what we did in class very well and it was very understandable. I liked the colours you used, they added emphasis to what you were talking about. Well, overall good post!!! :P

6. Oh, and Suzie, you are missing a link and a video. :)

7. Good job Suzie you explained everything we have done in class but your missing the video .

8. Good job! The top part of your post was short, sweet, and to the point. However, I did not see a diagram to help explain it. You should also include a link and video to accompany your post. I also have to mention that the bottom part of your post was less than spectacular. The probability of getting 1,2,3,4,5,or 6 when rolling a six-sided die is 100%. Other than that, good job. :)

10. Good Job!! you explained every thing we did in class. you did a great job of choosing witch colour to put. So ya good Job !

11. good Job ! You explained everything well. I liked how you put different colours to make it pop out ! The thing I kind of dont like is the post is short you should of made it a little more ! Well anyways Keep it Up ! Excellent Jooob !

12. Good job Suzie. Obviously the blog was a bit late. Make sure to remember it. There are no links pics or videos in the post. Try doing that. Otherwise good job.

13. Suzie, I think you did an okay job. But one of the things that I liked were your colors, and when you explained probability. On the other hand, I thought this wasn't one of your best works because you didn't have a diagram, a link, neither a video to help explain. Also, the ending of your post wasn't the best example you could've done. I thought it wasn't as thought out as it should've been. So, next time try to remember to add a picture, a link, and a video. And also, make your examples easier to understand.

14. Good job. You explained everything well. I like how some of the important words were change into a different colour.

15. Good Job Suzie, you explained everything very well, but on some parts i didn't really get. It was still good though, keep it up.

16. good job suzie it was really good you did a good job explaining and i really liked it but you could of done a better example at the rnd but it was good and u should addad a pic and a link or a vedoi to make it a little better but good job!!!!!!!!

17. good job suzie you did good on your second blog its really good !!!!!

18. Good job suzie ! I like how you used alot of colour to show and it really caught my eye. You should put a link or a video or both to show what you are talking about. Either than that good job !

19. Good job Suzie. Nice use of colour for the important points, your blog was easy to understand and it was simple. Maybe next time you should add a picture or two. Good job.(:
