UNIT: COUNTING UNIT

TIME: 60 MINS

Lesson / Topic: Using knowledge of tree diagrams to discover the Fundamental Counting
Principle
Content Area Learning/Performance:
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.SP.C.8.B

Represent sample spaces for compound events using methods such as organized lists, tables
and tree diagrams. For an event described in everyday language (e.g., "rolling double sixes"),
identify the outcomes in the sample space which compose the event.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSS.CP.B.9

Use permutations and combinations to compute probabilities of compound events and solve
problems.
Objectives:

Students will be able to:


-Identify and describe the number of possible outcomes of several objects by
using a tree diagram.
-Use their knowledge of tree diagrams to discover the Fundamental Counting
Principle.

Development/Procedures (15 - 20 MIN) Group-work:
Students will be presented with the
Shorts and Shirts Activity Sheet and will be asked to find the total number of possible
outcomes. Students will work in pairs to determine the total outcomes. One group will be
selected to share their work using document camera.
Group Share (5 MIN) : Student(s) will present their work to the class.

Discussion (5 MIN): Is there a better or quicker way to organize data?


Students will participate in a turn and talk with their partner to discuss possible
methods. Students will share their ideas for the teacher.
NOTE: making a list, tree diagram
Group-work (5-10 MIN):
Students will work in pairs to create a tree diagram of all
possible outcomes. Each pair will fill out the diagram on board.
Summary Activity ( 10 MIN): Whole Class Sharing
The finalized tree diagram will be discussed as a class to reinforce understanding. Students will
be posed the essential questions again
How many possibilities were there for shorts?
How many possibilities were there for shirts?
How many possibilities of shorts and shirts were there?
Students will be posed the question: How were these numbers related to each other? Can we
think of a general rule for determining the total number of outcomes?
NOTE: multiply the number of items and the number of shorts together
Homework: For a three course dinner, you are given the following options:
Appetizer: salad OR soup
Main : chicken OR steak OR pasta
Dessert: Cheese-cake OR Gelato
How can we find the total possible outcomes? What is the total possible outcomes?
Student Assessment: Group Work, Presentations and Discussions.
Reflection Journal: Consider the general rule we came up with for determining the total
number of outcomes. How is multiplying all the number of items together related to the tree
diagram created in class?
Differentiation: Heterogeneous grouping based on performance from previous year/learning
style. Visual Representation/Manipulatives provided. Teacher will circulate room to facilitate
student learning.
