```Unit 11 Handling Data
Dear Parent or Guardian,
During this unit, your child will be consolidating their learning about handling data
and probability. They carry out an extended investigation using all the data handling
techniques that they have learned over the previous stages.
In this unit, they will learn to:
 interpret statistics that are used in everyday life
 use mean, median, mode and the range to interpret data
 find the probability of events happening
 list equally likely events.
Listing possible outcomes
When you roll a fair dice you are equally likely to get one
The
diagram shows the probability of throwing different scores on a fair dice.
of six possible outcomes
1
1
1
1
1
1
6
6
6
6
6
6
Since each number on the dice is equally likely the
probability of getting any one of the numbers is 1 divided
by 6 or 1/6.
We will be using real-life data that we draw from the internet or that children find for
themselves through surveys and questionnaires. We will also carry out practical
probability experiments.
You can help by looking for graphs and charts in the media and discussing with your
child what the graphs represent.
