Maths – Learning about chance

Today we have been using language to describe chance events

(more likely, less likely, probably,

could happen, could not happen,

possible, impossible)

identification of common events as:

o certain (eg the sun will set today)

o likely (eg there are likely to be

clouds in the sky today)

o unlikely (eg it is unlikely to snow

here today)

o impossible (eg the sun will not

rise tomorrow)
