This is one of many resources produced by the Shell Centre at the University of Nottingham for the MARS project in the USA. There are comprehensive teacher notes and excellent student resources. This resource uses a problem to introduce the idea of relative frequency, you may wish to use UK coins instead of the US currency. The teachers’ notes are particularly useful to anyone wishing to get to grips with the big idea(s) behind the topic.
Topics: Relative frequency
This resource is from a collection of activities aimed at level 2 FSMQ. You may need to scroll down the page a little to find the work called "A Risky Business". The resource includes teachers’ notes, students’ sheets and a powerpoint. This is a nice use of relative frequency to estimate the risk of injuries it also looks at using relative frequencies to estimate the expected number of accidents. This is a nice follow up activity which looks at risk in sporting activities and how to display the information.
