Mathematics: Data Management and Probability
- compare, through investigation, the theoretical probability of an event with experimental probability, and explain why they might differ
- determine, through investigation, the tendency of experimental probability to approach theoretical probability as the number of trials in an experiment increases, using class-generated data and technology-based simulation models
Knowledge of basic Scratch menus, understanding of how to use of variables in Scratch coding, understanding of how to calculate percentages, knowledge of the concepts of experimental and theoretical probability.
These lessons provide opportunities for teachers and students to gather evidence through teacher, peer, and self-assessments; and learning goals and success criteria. See Growing Success: Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting in Ontario Schools, Chapter 4 for more information.
