probability learning

In Maths we have been learning to:


  • compare and describe the variation between theoretical and experimental distributions in situations that involve elements of chance.


  • calculate probabilities, using fractions, percentages, and ratios.


Here is a link to our online modelling book that supports this learning.


Here is some evidence of my learning.

My next step is to continue to apply my knowledge of statistics and probability in a variety of real world situations and contexts.
