Not Likely! contains three sections of work for students aged 7-9 on the topic of probability, chance and data.
SECTION ONE: AT HOME
This section presents a series of 10 activities for developing the school-home partnership. These activities are designed to be completed by children and parents co-operatively. They form an introduction to chance and data and will assist in informing parents about the type of chance and data activities that students will be involved in at school.
SECTION TWO: QUICKIES
Quickies are activities designed to involve children physically in their maths (a great boon to kinaesthetic learners). They can be used either as a learning centre/station in group rotations, or as an introduction to lessons. The use of diff erent recording formats (involving fractions, decimals and percentages if needed) is best determined by you as teacher.
SECTION THREE: ACTIVITY CARDS
These activities are designed to be made into activity cards. The cards may be used for early fi nishers, or as a station in rotation. Students could work in pairs as the language of some cards may prove difficult
