Applied and calculated probability by creating several different scenarios showing the multiplication rule. Also took an assessment on chapter 14 to see the progress of the students and their knowledge.

After Chapter 14 assessment, reviewed how to calculate probability from a tree diagram, multiplying across the tree in order to figure out the probability of obtaining each result in the sample space.
