Take a chance on raising money. Learners calculate probabilities to determine whether a lottery is a good way to raise money. Pupils determine the number of combinations of choosing two numbers between one and six. Using the sample space, scholars determine whether trying to match two numbers drawn from a bag is a good way to raise money and explain their thinking.
