Background Tutorials

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.

When you're conducting an experiment, the outcome is a very important part. The outcome of an experiment is any possible result of the experiment. Learn about outcomes by watching this tutorial!

In an experiment, it's good to know your sample space. The sample space is the set of all possible outcomes of an experiment. Watch this tutorial to get a look at the sample space of an experiment!

When you're trying to figure out all the possibilities from different options, it can be helpful to draw a picture. In this tutorial, you'll see how to use a picture to figure out how many different outcomes can be created from the possibilities given. Check it out!
