This lesson introduces the Basic (Fundamental) Counting Principle. Students will compute the number of possible outfits, lunch combinations and restaurant orders that are possible in given scenarios. The lesson provides two neat, colorful graphic organizers that are student ready. There are no answer keys provided. The questions asked in the lesson are vague and may not lead students to solving correctly. Also, the stating of the principle is a little unclear as an 'x' is used to indicate multiplication and this may be confused as a variable. An explanation is given as to when addition and multiplication is used and students are asked to create a scenario. Examples of each of these would also be helpful.
