An engaging 30 slide interactive PowerPoint to use in the classroom when learning about chance and probability in the upper years.

Use this interactive PowerPoint Presentation as a teaching resource in the classroom when teaching chance and probability in the upper years.

As a class, work your way through the 14 problems presented on the 30 slides.

Students choose the correct answer from the options presented. When they select the incorrect answer, the PowerPoint will ‘buzz’, when they select the correct answer, the PowerPoint will ‘chime’ and transition to the answer slide.

Use the answer slide for student sharing and additional learning opportunities.

To activate the interactive functions on this PowerPoint, ensure that you have ‘enabled editing’ and are viewing the PowerPoint as a ‘Slide Show’.

Implement this interactive PowerPoint as a warm up prior to lessons, or as a daily revision when concluding a lesson.

Add new slides and create your own class questions and answers using the editable function on the PowerPoint.

Please note that this PowerPoint is a large file and may take extra time to download.

    Hi, the last question says the answer is 1/4 yet when you take the two blue counters out you are left with 5 purple counters out of 16 counters in the jar: 5/16

      HI Leighton,

      Sometimes this error happens with older versions of PowerPoint or some school versions which prevent PowerPoint templates being opened.

      Can I get you to try something for me? Please right click the file and select ‘Open’ from the menu. This should allow you to access the file without the error message.
      Alternatively, if you are using a Mac, open the PowerPoint app directly and then open the downloaded PowerPoint file using the app (usually in the ‘Downloads’ folder).

      If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
