# Understanding Outcomes

Description

One of the important skills that students will need to excel at probability going forward is comparing different likelihoods that can occur simultaneously. This is illustrated in this worksheet by using a deck of playing cards.

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