|Probability can be represented using a scale from 0 to 1 with 0 being impossible and 1 being definite. For each of the five statements below, mark on the probability scale based on the probability of the event occurring.
Remember, the closer your mark gets to 0 for each event, the less likely it is that the event will happen. The closer your mark gets to 1 for each event, the more likely it is that the event will happen.

The various resources listed below are aligned to the same standard, (7SP05) taken from the CCSM (Common Core Standards For Mathematics) as the Statistics and probability Worksheet shown above.
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.
Similar to the above listing, the resources below are aligned to related standards in the Common Core For Mathematics that together support the following learning outcome:
