Chance (Year 9)
This module from the AMSI 'The Improving Mathematics Education in Schools (TIMES) project' is for teachers who wish to consolidate and extend their content knowledge on the topic of probability, and the concepts of two-step problems and estimating probabilities from large data sets. There are sections that provide history and context for the topics, as well as exercises and examples of how to present and explain the concepts to students.
