HD2/L1.2

Express the likelihood of an event using fractions, decimals and percentages with the probability scale of 0 to 1 (a) Understand that the likelihood of an event is measured on a scale from 0 (impossible) to 1 (certain) (b) Understand that likelihood (or probability) is expressed as the number of ways the event can happen divided by the total number of possible outcomes (c) Understand that likelihood or probability can be written as a fraction, decimal or percentage, e.g. the likelihood that a coin will land heads-up is 50%, .5 or 1/2 - the expression there is a fifty-fifty chance is an expression of likelihood using percentages

Probability game

Numeracy: Functional Maths - data handling, HD2/L1.2

Resource type: Game, Worksheet or assignment

Level: L1, L2

A game to help learners get to grips with the likelihood of selecting a particular thing at random. Students practise expressing probabilities as fractions, decimals and percentages. This activity avoids the taboos on dice and cards that some learners have. It also revises concepts such as multiples and “greater” and “less than”.

1 page cards to be cut out – give one set to each student (or pair of students), 1 page for student to complete, plus an answer sheet.
