Statistics and probability (Years 7 to 9)

On this page there are links to papers on three modules that explain the basic concepts of probability and statistics:

These provide details of the knowledge students should have and some of the misconceptions they may hold. Examples are given to illustrate what these misconceptions may look like, how to address them, and support teachers in developing pedagogical and content knowledge.
