# predictions

## Long Running

In this unit we take samples of blocks from a bag and use them to make predictions about the blocks that the bag actually contains. We discuss the difference between theoretical and experimental probabilities.

## Predict away

In this unit we take samples of blocks from a bag and use them to make predictions about the blocks that the bag actually contains. The students learn that although we can't be 100% certain we can use the information that we gather from sampling to make reasonable predictions.

## What's in the bag?

In this unit we experiment with cubes to make predictions about likelihood based on our observations. With these experiences the students find out that with probability there is no way of knowing for sure that will happen.

## The Cube and Coin Challenges

In this unit we play several games based on coloured cubes and coins. The idea is to get some idea of the relative rate at which things happen and think about the concept of a fair game.

## That's not fair!

In this unit we play probability games and learn about sample space and a sense of fairness

## Lonely Pig

In this unit we have a first look at uncertainty and chance. We begin to develop an intuitive sense of what chance and possibilities are about. The activities in this unit are games that involve following rules, making predictions and seeing what happens.

## No way Jose

In this unit we develop the language of probability by considering events which are likely or unlikely. We do this using the context of children's stories.
