## Lara's Equiprobable Dice I

• Problem Solving Activities
• Statistics
• Level Five

Find certain probabilities relating to rolling two dice

Devise and use problem solving strategies to explore situations mathematically (be systematic)

## Another Dartboard

• Problem Solving Activities
• Statistics
• Level Five

Predict probabilities of an event involving area

Make deductions from probabilities

Devise and use problem solving strategies to explore situations mathematically (guess and check, be systematic, look for patterns, draw a diagram, make a table, think, use algebra).

## Make the Highest Total

• Problem Solving Activities
• Statistics
• Level Five

theoretically and experimentally examine the probabilities of games of chance

devise and use problem solving strategies to explore situations mathematically (be systematic, use a table).

## Coin Shake-Up

• Problem Solving Activities
• Statistics
• Level Three

Predict the likelihood of an event based on data collected

Use a systematic approach to find all possible outcomes

Effectively plan mathematical exploration

## Grabbing CDs

• Problem Solving Activities
• Statistics
• Level Three

Systematically count outcomes

Compare the likelihood of events

Devise and use problem solving strategies to explore situations mathematically (systematic list, draw a picture, use equipment).

## Dressing In The Dark

• Problem Solving Activities
• Statistics
• Level Three

Work systematically to identify all the possible outcomes.

Describe events using everyday language.

## Breakfast Biscuits

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Four

This unit seeks to connect learning outcomes across all five content strands, number, geometry, statistics, and measurement. However the context lends itself strongly to use of measurement and statistics. In the unit students investigate questions that involve them in experiment design, data collection and display, and drawing conclusions from data. Students investigate the measurements of breakfast biscuits, how much milk they absorb, how strong they are and the hidden truth about collecting cards.
