# chances

• Units of Work
• Statistics
• Level Two

In this unit students make spinners to show the probability of events. They will make statements about probabilities shown on spinners and evaluate statements made by other classmates.

## Greedy Pig

• Numeracy activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level Two

This activity provides students with a fun, game context in which to practice their addition skills.  It also introduces concepts of probability.

## 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.

## Beat It

• Units of Work
• Statistics
• Level Four

The purpose of this unit is to use games to gather and present data in a systematic way in order to determine the likely outcomes of some everyday events.

## Spinners

• Units of Work
• Statistics
• Level Three

This unit uses one of the digital learning objects, Spinners, to support students as they explore probability. It includes problems and questions that can be used by the teacher when working with a group of students on the learning object, and ideas for independent student work.

## Long Running

• Units of Work
• Statistics
• Level Three

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 probability and experimental estimates of probability.

## What's in the bag?

• Units of Work
• Statistics
• Level Three

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.

## Greedy Pig

• Units of Work
• Statistics
• Level Four

This activity provides students with a fun game context in which to practice their addition skills. It also introduces concepts of probability.
