Winning the Lottery
Aimed at students in Key Stage Four, this task from CensusAtSchool uses the context of the National Lottery to look at theoretical probabilities and compare these to a experimental data. The worksheet contains a link to a site to simulate a lottery draw. The activity allows students to investigate successive events and use tree diagrams.
Students will gain experience of working with equally likely outcomes, experimental probability and relative frequency.
