## Reflection: Data Analysis Compound Events - Visual Displays of Sample Spaces - Section 3: Summarize

This summary activity was a great way for me to see who got it and who didn't.  When we worked through the examples in class it seemed as though everyone was on board...except for that third problem where you flip three coins - they did look at me like I was nuts :)  Most groups were able to successfully depict their sample space, as evidenced by Student Work 1 , Student Work 2, and Student Work 3.  However, I did find myself sitting with a few groups, as they struggled to create a tree diagram (even though I did say you could use a list if you wanted - some groups were so insistent!).  For those groups I worked through their example with them and then gave them a second one to do on their own with their group.

Big Idea: Sometimes running multiple trials can help us get a better idea of what we don't know. Other times, multiple trials can help us get real data that is closer to what we expected in the first place.
