Australian Curriculum Linked Lessons: The Language of Chance
Hurrell, Derek
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v20 n1 p28-33 2015
In providing a continued focus on tasks and activities that help to illustrate key ideas embedded in the "Australian Curriculum," this issue focuses on the Statistics and probability strand and the sub-strand of Chance. In the Australian Curriculum (ACARA, 2015), students are not asked to list outcomes of chance experiments and represent those probabilities until Year 5 (ACMSP116). Before this time, the focus was on identifying events that involve chance, and in developing everyday language to describe and order the events. Derek Hurrell notes, tt seems eminently sensible to involve students in activities which requires them to employ the language of chance, therefore Hurrell uses this article to introduce four activities that assist students in learning this concept.
