Transcript of Chance: Stage 2
Where Am I in the Syllabus?
Describes and compares chance events in social and experimental contexts
"The key to the development is the recognition of randomness" (Way, 2016)
How do we teach it?
Thanks for watching!
Independence of Events
Identify and discuss events where the chance of one event occurring will not be affected by the occurrence of the other, eg obtaining a 'head' when tossing a coin does not affect the chance of obtaining a 'head' on the next toss
Identify events where the chance of one occurring will not be affected by the occurrence of the other
