Possible outcomes: Year 4 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 4 is for the topic of Possible outcomes. Students build on their language of chance and ability to order outcomes or events based on their likelihood of occurring. They begin working with independent and dependent events – independent events occur when one event does not affect the other, while dependent events are affected by previous events.
