The Year 5 Statistics and Probability program gives students skills in describing, collecting and representing data, and interpreting graphical representations.
The Year 5 Statistics and Probability program is aligned with the relevant outcomes from the Statistics and Probability strand of the Australian curriculum. Students studying Statistics and Probability in Year 5 learn how to represent variables, such as time and distance on a line graph, make predictions based on theoretical probability and represent the language of chance on a number line.
This learning program is made up of the following 2 topics, broken down into 23 concepts.
Determine the total number of data values represented in dot plots and column graphs
Construct line graphs of numerical data using a scale of many-to-one correspondence, with and without digital technology
Consider the data type to determine and draw the most appropriate display(s), such as column graphs, dot plots and line graphs
Recognise which types of data display are most appropriate to represent categorical data
Use information presented in data displays to aid decision making
Construct dot plots for numerical data
Interpret line graphs using the scales on the axes
Tabulate collected data, including numerical data, with and without the use of digital technologies such as spreadsheets
Pose and refine questions to construct a survey to obtain categorical and numerical data about a matter of interest
Describe and interpret data presented in tables, dot plots, column graphs and line graphs
Identify and describe relationships that can be observed in data displays
Represent given categorical data in column graphs using a scale of many-to-one correspondence
Name and label axes and choose appropriate titles for column graphs
Describe events that are impossible and events that are certain
Recognise that outcomes are described as equally likely when anyone outcome has the same chance of occurring as any other outcome
List all outcomes in chance experiments where each outcome is equally likely to occur
Determine the likelihood of winning simple games by considering the number of possible outcomes
Order commonly used chance word on an interval from zero (impossible) to one (certain)
Represent probabilities of outcomes of chance experiments using fraction
Establish that the sum of the probabilities of the outcomes of any chance experiment is equal to 1
Describe the likelihood of a variety of events as being more or less than a half (or 0.5) and order the events on an interval
Order events from least likely to most likely to occur
Use the term probability to describe the numerical value that represents the likelihood of an outcome of a chance experiment
