When attempting to determine the degree of risk associated with an event, experts rely on a variety of tools of the trade to generate a risk estimate. In this activity, students will learn about the applications of some of these tools, interpret information generated from using different tools, and understand how the information obtained can be used to set priorities and make decisions.
