In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students confront and overcome common misconceptions about probability, count equally likely outcomes using diagrams, discuss relationships between theoretical probabilities, observed outcomes and sample sizes and calculate probabilities of dependent and independent events. Students will not need any prior knowledge about probability in order to use and analyse the games. This knowledge will be
developed through the activity and the discussion that follows it. (GCSE Grades A - F)
