Use a tree diagram to find the probability that a set of triplets will be all girls in this interactive from MPT. In the accompanying classroom activity, students find the probability of various outcomes of compound events involving a set of dice, such as the probability of rolling doubles and the probability of rolling at least one “2.” They share solution strategies, including methods of representing sample spaces for these compound events. To get the most from the lesson, students should have experience developing and using uniform probability models. For a longer self-paced student tutorial using this media, see "Tree Diagrams" on *Thinkport* from Maryland Public Television.
