Winning the Lottery
Aimed at students in Key Stage Four, this task from CensusAtSchool uses the context of the National Lottery to look at theoretical probabilities and compare these to a experimental data. The worksheet contains a link to a site to simulate a lottery draw. The activity allows students to investigate successive events and use tree diagrams.
Students will gain experience of working with equally likely outcomes, experimental probability and relative frequency.
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.
