The Big Picture
This is the first lesson in this module on uncertainty. This lesson explores what a certain or uncertain event is.
By the end of this session, students will be able to tell the difference between certain and uncertain events.
Initial whole class discussion - Display the first slide of TRUEntKS4Uncertainty_lesson1
Discuss what they understand about certainty and uncertainty and what type of events they would put under these classifications.
Discuss whether it is possible to influence the outcomes of either type of event.
Split into groups of 4/5 to work with two scenarios:
One where they feel certain of the outcome
One where they know that the outcome would be uncertain.
The groups are to determine the factors that make their scenarios suitable to be classified as a certainty or an uncertainty. They record these as two separate brainstorm charts.
