Connecting Probability

Summary

Where does the topic of probability fit with the maths curriculum? It is often the topic squeezed into the end of a busy year but it can effectively be connected into many if not all mathematics topics across the secondary year levels.
This workshop will trial games, experiments and learning activities to engage and support the learning of probability throughout the whole year. Through examining and challenging a number of common misconceptions associated with probability, the benefits of integrating probability more broadly will be demonstrated. For example, probability can support the understanding of fractions and fluency with numbers but even more importantly it can assist with problem-solving and the development of reasoning skills.
The workshop is aimed at Year 7-10 teachers as they prepare students for the leap into complex VCE probability, but will also help demonstrate how probability can be incorporated into decision making in daily life.
