defined as (the likelihood of an event happening or occurring). Most often it is referred to a (P/A)

For elementary children, a probability is an area that children must understand that it refers to a chance, a
guess, or a prediction.
This concept can be confusing to young children because of the terms being used to represent
probability. Probability can also be expressed by using vocabulary words such as "unlikely” or “likely,"
“equally” or “even chance”, "certain," or, “impossible”, "possible. “
The purpose of this downloadable poster is to supply the teacher with a visual poster to assist when
teaching about data, basic probability, and chance. The first poster indicates the concept of most and
least using targets. The 2
nd poster shows the target from the impossible to the possibilities which include
fractions and percentages.
