Probability: Level 1

The key idea of probability at level 1 is beginning to explore chance situations.

At level 1 students are exploring games of chance that they play and outcomes from statistical investigations.  They are discussing the different outcomes that are possible.

Students are developing early probability language and describing outcomes.  For example an outcome is certain, possible, impossible or an outcome always happens, never happens, sometimes happens.

This key idea is extended in the key idea of probability at level 2 where students are beginning to recognise that some events are more likely than others in chance situations.
