#### Description:

This lesson is designed to introduce students to the study of counting techniques, known as combinatorics, and its applications to probability. This lesson provides links to discussions and activities related to combinatorics and how it is used to compute probabilities as well as suggested ways to integrate them into the lesson.

#### CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-IC.A.2: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Decide if a specified model is consistent with results from a given data-generating process, e.g., using simulation.

#### CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-IC.B.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Use data from a randomized experiment to compare two treatments; use simulations to decide if differences between parameters are significant.

#### CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-CP.A.2: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Understand that two events A and B are independent if the probability of A and B occurring together is the product of their probabilities, and use this characterization to determine if they are independent.

#### CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-CP.B.6: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Find the conditional probability of A given B as the fraction of B's outcomes that also belong to A, and interpret the answer in terms of the model.

#### CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-MD.A.1: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

(+) Define a random variable for a quantity of interest by assigning a numerical value to each event in a sample space; graph the corresponding probability distribution using the same graphical displays as for data distributions.

#### CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-MD.B.6: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

(+) Use probabilities to make fair decisions (e.g., drawing by lots, using a random number generator).
