# The foul food maker: go figure

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Description
This tutorial is suitable for use with a screen reader. Practise using simple words to describe the likelihood of everyday events. How likely is an event: certain, likely, equal chance, unlikely or certainly not? Answer some questions using these words and then build your own examples. Learn how to describe probability using fractions, decimals and percentages. Explore sampling experiments and compare actual results with expected results. This learning object is one in a series of four objects.
Objective
1. Students match probability situations with everyday chance words.
2. Students explore the tension between theoretical probability and randomness.
3. Students express theoretical probabilities as fractions, decimals or percentages.
4. Students explore variations in samples and compare these with the theoretical result.
