The documents below provide possible learning experiences or assessment tasks for the realigned standards.
They have not been moderated, but are the result of collaborations between Auckland teachers.

A.S 1.13 Investigate a situation involving elements of chance
This invesitagtion (chainsaws) is a nice idea but does not meet the standard as it involves a simulation. Simulations are now at level 7 of the curriculum (NCEA Level 2). It could be adapted to meet the standard by removing the simulation and just investigate the throwing of six dice, in which case it becomes very similar to the webtask v B.
When creating tasks for this standard we need to think of practical probabilities (eg the basketball task) or theoretical distributions (eg throwing dice, coins, picking playing cards, random number generators etc. Chainsawsv2.doc
