## SOCR May 2008 Event - Apply basic concepts of probability

### Distinguish between permutations and combinations and identify situations in which each is appropriate

### Calculate probabilities using permutations and combinations to count events

### Compute conditional and unconditional probabilities in various ways, including by definitions, the general multiplication rule, and probability trees

- Compute exactly and empirically the probability of success of winning in the Monty Hall Experiment. You can also play the Monty Hall Interactive Game. These provide a nice illustration of conditional probabilities.

### Define simple discrete random variables
