This list supports the following learning objectives:
Know that if the probability of an event occurring is p then the probability of it not occurring is 1 − p; use diagrams and tables to record in a systematic way all possible mutually exclusive outcomes for single events and for two successive events.
Compare estimated experimental probabilities with theoretical probabilities, recognising that:
• if an experiment is repeated the outcome may, and usually will, be different
• increasing the number of times an experiment is repeated generally leads to better estimates of probability.
Compare experimental and theoretical probabilities in a range of contexts; appreciate the difference between mathematical explanation and experimental evidence.
