Statistics and Probability: Chance
This sequence starts in year one
Outcomes of familiar events involving chance
Using everyday language such as 'will happen', 'won't happen' or 'might happen'
Practical activities and everyday events that involve chance
Some events as 'certain' or 'impossible'
Outcomes as 'likely' or 'unlikely'
Possible outcomes and recognise variations in results
Describe possible everyday events and order their chances of occurring
Identify everyday events where one cannot happen if the other happens
Identify events where the chance of one will not be affected by the occurrence of the other
List outcomes of chance experiments invloving equally likely outcomes
Represent probabilities of outcomes using fractions
Recognise that probabilities range from 0 to 1
Describe the probabilities using fractions, decimals and percentages
Conduct chance experiments with both small and large numbers of trials using appropriate digital technologies
Compare and observed frequencies across experiments with expected frequencies
