What: We are learning to predict possible outcomes in an experiment.
Why: This will help us to improve our ability to make predictions.
How: I’ll be able to conduct a chance experiment using a spinner.
In pairs, you will collaborate and negotiate to design and build your own spinner online, choosing how many parts you want your spinner divided into and the colours of each part.
- Predict what the outcomes would be if the spinner were to spin 10 times.
- Spin the spinner 10 times and record the results.
- Describe why the results may be the same or different to their predications.
- Share your ideas and discuss your strategies – recording them in their maths notebooks and post as a comment below.
What influences the sector the spinner lands on? Chance or luck? Explain your answer.
