CCSS.Math.Content.7.SP.C.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

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.

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.3: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Recognize the purposes of and differences among sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies; explain how randomization relates to each.

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-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).
