Try out some realistic gambling simulations with an average return to player (equals price x probability) of always less than 95%. See how the longer you play the more certain you are of losing all your stake. Tease out common misunderstandings and confront them with the key message ‘Chance has no memory’.
See how these simulations can be used as an engaging way of covering all the probability content of the Year 9/10 curriculum.
See how real gambling data – from the local pokies venue to the Australia-wide context – can be easily accessed by students for use in the calculation and representation learning activities of the Year 9/10 statistics curriculum.
Discuss effective ways of dealing with the gambling issue in Year 9/10 classrooms. Organise to get access to all the resources used in the session.
