# Observing Chance

Description

In this worksheet, students make and test a series of predictions around the flipping of a coin. It helps them understand the outcomes of a 50/50 test and how the outcome of one flip event is not related to the outcomes of any past or future events.

This worksheet is part of a larger probability unit for Year 4 where students develop insights into the likelihoods of future outcomes through completing chance experiments.
