Probability

Today we started out a unit in probability by talking about theoretical and experimental probability.  Here are some definitions that we are working with:

Theoretical probability means an educated guess.  There has to be a reason that makes you think of your theory. (There must be a “BECAUSE”.)

Experimental probability is another way of saying “what ACTUALLY happens”.  You test out your theory.
