Too Many Boys in the Family?
A question posed by this resource from CensusAtSchool, investigating whether probability relates to reality. Real data is contrasted with the theoretical probabilities of the number of boys in a family, using the assumption that the probability of having a boy is 0.5. Equally likely outcomes, combined events, tree diagrams, binomial distribution, theoretical and experimental probability are all explored.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
