This activity challenges you to make collections of shapes. Can you give your collection a name?
An old game but lots of arithmetic!
Use the interactivity to sort these numbers into sets. Can you give each set a name?
This activity asks you to collect information about the birds you see in the garden. Are there patterns in the data or do the birds seem to visit randomly?
These red, yellow and blue spinners were each spun 45 times in total. Can you work out which numbers are on each spinner?
Explore this interactivity and see if you can work out what it does. Could you use it to estimate the area of a shape?
Which of these ideas about randomness are actually correct?
Can you generate a set of random results? Can you fool the random simulator?
How could you compare different situation where something random happens ? What sort of things might be the same ? What might be different ?
When five dice are rolled together which do you expect to see more often, no sixes or all sixes ?
If a coin rolls and lands on a set of concentric circles what is the chance that the coin touches a line ?
Can you work out which spinners were used to generate the frequency charts?

Use your skill and judgement to match the sets of random data.
What is a random pattern?
By exploring the concept of scale invariance, find the probability that a random piece of real data begins with a 1.
Can you build a distribution with the maximum theoretical spread?
