Calculate relative frequencies from given or collected data to estimate probabilities of events involving 'and' or 'or' (ACMSP226)
This sequence of two lessons students investigate streaks in statistical data. They develop tests for randomness in order to distinguish between random and non-random results and use their understanding of randomness to investigate the existence or otherwise of the 'hot streak' phenomenon in basketball. Each lesson is outlined ...
This sequence of two lessons explores how statistical techniques that rely on randomly generated data can be used to solve problems. In the first lesson, students compare different methods for calculating the area of an irregular shape, using the context of oil spill maps. They are introduced to the Monte Carlo method for ...
This is a four-page HTML resource about solving problems with relative frequencies. It contains two videos and four questions, one of which is interactive. The resource discusses and explains solving problems with relative frequencies to reinforce students' understanding.
In this mathematical activity, students use two-way tables and the concept of conditional probability to investigate the reliability of diagnostic testing, and consider the ethical implications in a human medical context.
At first glance, maths and magic might not appear to have much in common, but did you know that you can use maths and logic to come up with solutions to problems that can seem magical? Learn one such maths trick in this video from ABC Catalyst. What is the probability of the letter not being 'e'?
