Mathematics for Young Minds Data and Chance helps to build data understanding through activities that engage students in collecting, organizing, displaying, and interpreting information about topics known to them. From a young age, children experience chance in various aspects of life. While these experiences provide children with some familiarity of chance contexts, they need support and guidance to understand key aspects of chance, particularly likelihood and randomness.
The sections of this book focus on four aspects of data and chance: working with data, interpreting data, chance language, and everyday chance. Each section contains three activities for each of the five cognitive components.
Activities involve young children in the initial reasoning processes of identifying and describing attributes, sorting, comparing, and ordering.
Data and Chance includes:
Individual, small-group, and whole-class activities
