An Introduction to Tree Diagrams

A tree diagram is simply a way of representing a sequence of events. Tree diagrams are particularly useful in probability since they record all possible outcomes in a clear and uncomplicated manner. First principles Let's take a couple of examples back to first principles and see if we can gain a deeper insight into tree diagrams and their use for calculating probabilities. Why Start with Tree Diagrams? This article is part of our collection Great Expectations: Probability through Problems.

Why Start with Tree Diagrams?

The tree diagram is fundamental to our approach to learning probability. Right from the start, we expect students to: Collect data, which is then represented on a tree diagram and a 2-way table.Ask questions about what the data is saying.Test their impressions about what the data is saying against results aggregated across the whole class.Move from counts to proportions.Consider what the proportions will settle down to as we do more experiments. Compare their experimental results with what we would expect to happen - working from a tree diagram and 2-way table completed with the expected number of each outcome at each stage, using simple probabilities (eg. chance of getting a blue face on a die with four yellow and two blue faces) to find expected results in whole numbers (natural frequencies).

In Which Team Will Win? John Venn's 180th Birthday. John Venn was a logician and philosopher best known for introducing the Venn diagram.

John Venn's 180th Birthday

In the diagram, circles are used to visually and logically sort groups to illustrate their relationships to each other. For example, one circle may contain things that are mammals. The other circle may contain things that have wings. The overlapping space that both circles occupy would consist of mammals that have wings. With a concept this simple, you would think it was all fun and games to design an interactive doodle for John Venn’s 180th birthday. How did the idea develop? Carroll Diagrams.

Our August Insights puzzle challenged you to make sense of the daily torrent of COVID-19 data as an exercise in personal risk management.

Our first puzzle required judging the reliability and proper application of the key statistics that we are all familiar with: confirmed cases, reported deaths and testing numbers. What makes this hard is that it requires reasoning in the face of uncertainty, and even sophisticated modeling groups don’t agree completely. Nevertheless, it’s a great exercise for clarifying one’s concepts. In general, there are several tested methods in science for making headway in these kinds of situations: 1. La dernière banane : une illustration des probabilités - Leonardo Barichello. What will you do in Math today? Solargraphy : 7 Steps - Instructables. Once you have your cameras loaded and light-tight, you need to figure out where you are going to place them.

Solargraphy : 7 Steps - Instructables

Ideally, you want to have a clear view of the sun as it moves across the sky, but interesting effects can be made when cameras are placed behind other objects. You could point your can generally at the area where the sun sets, turning it slightly in the direction of where the sun just came from. There are a few things to consider before placing your cameras. - In today's world, people are easily alarmed by cylindrical objects taped to buildings, lampposts, etc. The Virtual Museum of Métis History and Culture.

In September 2014 Computing will be a new curriculum subject and I wanted to make some resources that could be used to support Scratch After seeing these hands-on blocks I thought it would be great if anyone could make their own. So I set about creating some vector versions of the standard Scratch blocks that could be scaled to any size required.

As I created them I also thought how useful it would be if Teachers could use them in other ways, for example, displays, PowerPoints and on Interactive Whiteboards. CS Fundamentals Unplugged Lessons.

Coding & Storytelling. Discerning Decomposition and computational disposition with Archelino: : A dialogue. Steven Khan & Sally Rudakoff This article is presented as a research informed dialogue between the two authors. It represents a reconstruction of conversations that occurred over several weeks, in person and via email as we explored the affordances of a wooden puzzle game for scaffolding understanding of the process of decomposition as used in computational thinking (CT) frameworks and computational dispositions in the early years alongside academic readings. We have not identified either one of us as S1 or S2. Splat! - Steve Wyborney's Blog: I'm on a Learning Mission. Welcome to Splat!

The Ticket Roll - 101qs. 3-Act Task: A kindergarten lesson captured. Over the past few months I’ve been asked for videos that capture a 3-Act Task being taught in the elementary grades. I didn’t have any, or know of anyone that has captured an elementary 3-Act except for this Teaching Channel piece. Before moving forward, this post wouldn’t be possible without Dan’s trailblazing skills and introducing us all to 3-Act Tasks.
