Overview

The Year 7 Probability program is aligned with the Data and Statistics strand of the Australian curriculum. Students studying Probability explore theoretical probability, experimental probability in games, and they interpret probability data recorded on two-way tables and in Venn diagrams. This program also teaches students how to use the language of probability, which is a fundamental component of this topic.
