In this unit students will be able to understand the idea of likelihood, manipulate the mathematical formulas for probability and relative frequency, calculate possible outcomes, and make predictions of the probability of an event.
Using the City on a Hill allusion from John Winthrop's famous sermon as a starting point, this lesson
gives students a paradigm, The American Dream, through which to view their study of American
literature in the classroom and in their own reading as well. This series of lessons was designed to meet the needs of gifted children for extension beyond the standard curriculum with the greatest ease of use for the educator. Assessment strategies and rubrics are included at the end of the unit.
