Skip navigation# Unit Overview: Probability 1 (Scale and equally likely events)

## Lessons:

### Use the language of probability and the probability scale

### Calculate probabilities from equally likely events

### Find the probability of an event not happening including using a table (include mutually exclusive and exhaustive)

### Find the predicted number of outcomes

In this lesson, we will learn how to apply the vocabulary of probability to scenarios and label the probability scale with words and numbers.

In this lesson, we will learn how to find the probability of a single, equally likely event using fractions, in a range of contexts including spinners, dice and counters. We will also learn how to use probability notation correctly.

In this lesson, we will learn how to look at equally likely events and mutually exclusive events and discover the sum of probabilities to aid finding the probability of an event not happening.

In this lesson, we will understand the definitions of outcome, event and trial. We will calculate predicted outcomes based on the results of a trial or experiment.
