Expected Outcomes

Unit 7: Probability
Lesson 4 of 5

Objective: SWBAT calculate the expected number of outcomes by multiplying the probability times the number of trials

Big Idea: If I roll a die 30 times, how many times can I expect to roll a 1? If I flip a coin 50 times, how many should I expect HEADS?
