Year 1 - Classify outcomes of simple familiar events. Students identify outcomes of familiar events involving chance and describe them using everyday language such as ‘will happen’, ‘won’t happen’ or ‘might happen’. Australian Curriculum Yr 1 Achievement Standard

Certain, Likely, Impossible

If you select a marble without looking how likely is it you will pick an orange one?

The Sludger NEW!

The Sludger vending machine has four possible flavours. What kind of slushy are you likely to get? Use the vending machine to squirt coloured slushies into ice-cream cones to see if you're right. Refill the machine and try again.

Back to TopYear 2 - Describe outcomes for everyday events. Students identify practical activities and everyday events that involve chance. They describe outcomes as ‘likely’ or ‘unlikely’ and identify some events as ‘certain’ or ‘impossible’.

The Vile Vendor NEW!

Use a vending machine to get a vile-flavoured drink such as Cabbage, Smelly Sock or Fresh Fish. The machine serves a can of drink randomly from four slots. Work out the likelihood of getting each flavour and choose a matching probability word: impossible, unlikely, equal, likely or certain.

Back to TopYear 3 - Conduct chance experiments and list possible outcomes. Students conduct chance experiments, identify and describe possible outcomes and recognise variation in results. Australian Curriculum Yr 3 Achievement Standard

Higher or LowerMobile Friendly Version

Pick whether you want to use an entire deck, or just one suit. This will change the probabilities in the “hint” section. Click how many cards you want to be in the game. Make your “wager” and then choose whether you think the next card will be higher or lower than the previous one. Remember, aces are LOW in this game.

Dice Duels - Fair or Unfair? NEW!

Are the dice dodgy? Test dice to see if they have been weighted (loaded) to favour one of the six numbers. How many rolls will you need before you can be reasonably sure of a conclusion? Experiment by rolling the dice first a small number of times and later many more times. Compare your predictions with the results of the experiment. What do you find?

Mysteriously Match the Mystery Spinner NEW!

A mystery spinner with one pointer and up to three equal sectors of up to three different colours, has been spun. Look at results of the spin displayed in a coloured bar graph, to see if or how often the dial has landed on particular colours. Your job is then to recreate this spinner and spin it to achieve similar results.
