Take a chance - unit of work

This unit provides students with a real life context to investigate the language of chance and how events may be manipulated to alter the chance of something happening. It also introduces the use of fractions, decimals and percentages when looking at probability.

Primary mathematics: games, simulations and modelling

These seven learning activities, which focus on 'games, simulations and modelling' using a variety of tools (software) and devices (hardware), illustrate the ways in which content, pedagogy and technology can be successfully and effectively integrated in order to promote learning. In the activities, teachers use games, ...

Dice don't have brains: raffle

In this mathematical activity students participate in teacher-directed classroom discussion based on a class raffle. All students write their names on raffle tickets and the teacher quite obviously writes his or her own name on a large number of raffle tickets. The teacher facilitates a classroom discussion about the concept ...

Colour chances

In this activity students investigate the colours found in various packets of lollies and discuss the chances of choosing certain colours randomly from the packet.

Teacher resource

Performance of diagnostic tests

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.

Dart probability

In this mathematical activity, students calculate expected scores for a novice dart player. They use technology to determine the best section to aim for and use areas to weight scores to account for double and triple scores.

Dice don't have brains: double totals

This activity explores the concept of randomness through dice rolling and the probability of different outcomes. Students explore possible combinations and totals arrived at when rolling two dice together. Students will make predictions, collect data and analyse their results. The activity is accompanied by extension activities ...

Your house number

In this activity students will use the digits in their house numbers. They will tally the digits of the house numbers of the class and order the house numbers by size. They will investigate the frequency of digits in different numbers used within their environment and discuss which ones occur most frequently and least frequently.

TIMES Module 13: Statistics and Probability: chance, year 8 - teacher guide

This is a 15-page guide for teachers. It continues the development of probability. A careful consideration of outcomes and equally likely outcomes is undertaken. In year 8, students see that these are a special case of finding probabilities of events by summing probabilities of the disjoint (or mutually exclusive) outcomes ...
