The Year 6 Statistics and Probability program gives students the skills to work with data and interpret graphs and enhances their mathematical skills and confidence.

Available in


The Year 6 Statistics and Probability program is aligned with the Statistics and Probability strand of the Australian curriculum. Students studying Statistics and Probability learn how to represent chance outcomes as fractions, decimals and percentages. They interpret tables and graphs depicted in the media, organise data into a two-way table and use terms such as frequency, outcomes and probability.

Topics & Concepts We Cover

This learning program is made up of the following 2 topics, broken down into 18 concepts.

  • Graphing Categorical Data 8 concepts

    1. Identify sources of possible bias in representations of data in the media by discussing various influences on data collection and representation

    2. Interpret tables and graphs from the media and online sources

    3. Create a two-way table to organise data involving two categorical variables

    4. Identify and describe conclusions that can be drawn from a particular representation of data

    5. Compare representations of the same data set in a side-by-side column graph and in a two-way table

    6. Interpret side-by-side column graphs for two categorical variables

    7. Identify misleading representations of data in the media

    8. Interpret data presented in two-way tables

  • Probability 10 concepts

    1. Design a spinner or label a die so that a particular outcome is more likely than another and discuss the probabilities of the outcomes

    2. Compare the expected probabilities with the observed probabilities after both small and large numbers of trials

    3. Use the term frequency to describe the number of times a particular outcome occurs in a chance experiment

    4. Distinguish between the frequency of an outcome and the probability of an outcome in a chance experiment

    5. List the outcomes for chance experiments where the outcomes are not equally likely to occur and assign probabilities to the outcomes using fractions

    6. Use knowledge of equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages to assign probabilities to the likelihood of outcomes

    7. Use samples to make predictions about a large population from which the sample comes

    8. Recognise that some random generators have outcomes that are not equally likely and discuss the effect on expected outcomes

    9. Use the term probability to describe the numerical value that represents the likelihood of an outcome of a chance experiment

    10. Assign expected probabilities to outcomes in chance experiments with random generators, including digital simulators
