# Stage 3, mathematics, Year B – Unit 28

This 2-week, Year B unit develops the big idea that visual representations help us understand aspects of our world (chance and position).

Students are provided opportunities to:

• plot and translate shapes on a Cartesian plane
• explore and experiment with frequency and sample size containing equal and unequal chance
• present probability outcomes and create random generators.

### Syllabus outcomes and content groups

Representing quantity fractions B – MAO-WM-01, MA3-RQF-01
