This standard is derived from Achievement Objective S6.3 Investigate situations that involve elements of chance.
This standard encourages students to undertake a probability experiment. They will need to pose a question, plan and conduct an experiment, choose appropriate displays including experimental probability distributions, and identify and communicate patterns in the data. Students need to understand the variation between theoretical and experimental probability distributions and realise the effect of the sample size.
