Comparing Mathematical Chance Predictions to Outcome Data

I can predict chance events and compare my predictions to the outcomes


what information from the last lesson do you think will be useful in this lesson?






Application:    dinner spinner


what are the mathematical chances you’d be happy with dinner in this given spinner?

Make one that would suit your family or your table- what are the chances you’d be happy(extremely satisfied) now?

Use maths to predict what the outcome would be if you spun it 100 times. (say how many times you think each possibility would occur- then turn that into a fraction to show the probability- can you express it as percentage?)

Spin it 100 times and check if turns out as you thought it would.

G    Did the results turn out as the maths predicted? Why do you think this is?
