# Maths Unit: Probability

Description

In this unit, students learn to describe and calculate chance in various ways and observe it at work in games and simple chance experiments. They also learn how probability samples can get generalised to larger populations.

• Class Activity
Curriculum Codes

AC9M6P01 9

Recognise that probabilities lie on numerical scales of 0 – 1 or 0% – 100% and use estimation to assign probabilities that events occur in a given context, using common fractions, percentages and decimals

AC9M4P02 9

Conduct repeated chance experiments to observe relationships between outcomes; identify and describe the variation in results

AC9M6P02 9

Conduct repeated chance experiments and run simulations with an increasing number of trials using digital tools; compare observations with expected results and discuss the effect on variation of increasing the number of trials

ACMSP144 8.4

Describe probabilities using fractions, decimals and percentages

ACMSP145 8.4

Conduct Probability (Chance) experiments with both small and large numbers of trials using appropriate digital technologies

ACMSP146 8.4

Compare observed frequencies across experiments with expected frequencies

VCMSP232

Describe probabilities using fractions, decimals and percentages

VCMSP233

Conduct chance experiments with both small and large numbers of trials using appropriate digital technologies

VCMSP234

Compare observed frequencies across experiments with expected frequencies
