The Chances Are...?

AusVELS Level 5 & 6
As students explore the idea of chance, it is critical they develop an understanding of the link between the number of possible outcomes, the likelihood of an event occurring and that probabilities range between 0 and 1.
This unit of work allows students to conduct experiments, examine outcomes, evaluate the likelihood of an event (using fractions, decimals and percentages) and explore chance experiments using technology.
Read through the weekly planner to know what the relationship is between the different parts of the lesson and the resources. This pack contains 23 pages. Although designed to be conducted over one week, depending on time available, student progress and other experiments you may wish to include – this unit may take longer to complete.

 Activities, tasks and assessment is included:
  • Heads & Tails
  • North, South, East, West (NSEW)
  • What’s in the Bag?
  • Probability Word Wall
  • Impossible, Certain & Somewhere In Between
  • Coin Toss!
  • Roll Me! (Part 1)
  • Roll Me! (Part 2)
  • Probability of Success
A range of websites and Apps are also suggested to assist with the use of technology (as expected at AusVELS Level 6).
Happy experimenting!
