Through the visual world of geometry, students experience probability as a tangible issue, allowing them to more easily grasp this important, but challenging concept. In this unit, you will find the probabilites for situations such as a meteor striking the United States, your meeting a friend at a mall, hearing a favorite song on the radio, and many others. Instead of using algebraic formulas to solve these probability problems, you will use geometric figures. The geometric solutions do not require any memorization of formulas or terms. Instead, you will be able to use well-known geometric relationships to understand the problem situations and then to solve them.
