Teacher guide Introduction to probability

TLF ID M013354

This is a website designed for both teachers and students in year 5, and addresses components of the probability topic. It is particularly relevant for discussing chance experiments where the probability of events is equally likely and for describing those events using fractions. There are pages for both teachers and students. The student pages contain interactive questions for students to check their progress in the topic




Educational details

Educational value
  • This resource is valuable for both teachers and students for the year 5 Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. It is particularly relevant to the content descriptions about listing outcomes of chance experiments as an introduction to probability. The resource supports students in listing outcomes of chance experiments where there are equally likely outcomes, in using fractions to represent probabilities of outcomes and in understanding that probabilities range from 0 to 1.
  • The resource may be useful in helping students achieve those elements of the year 5 achievement standards that refer to students listing outcomes of chance experiments with equally likely outcomes and assigning probabilities between 0 and 1.
