This unit builds on the earlier Unit 9: Probability, to develop understanding of the use of diagrams, charts and tables in solving probability problems. The unit begins with a consideration of the impact of sample size on the relative frequency obtained. Graphs are used to support understanding. Tree diagrams are used to represent the outcome of dependent and independent events and to calculate the probabilities of these outcomes. Venn diagrams are introduced to represent outcomes and to support the calculation of probabilities from real-life context and with an emphasis on developing reasoning skills. Two-way tables are also considered, and the unit closes by exploring probability problems linked with other areas of mathematics such as algebra and data handing.
