Today you will practice converting between fractions, decimals and percentages by conducting an investigation of random colours.

You will work in pairs, each pair will need 4 different coloured shapes. Create a table like the example below on your laptop or maths book.

hOne student will turn the coloured page while the other student (with eyes closed) points at the shape.

One of the pair records the tally on your chart while the other student rearranges the order of shapes.

Repeat x 10

Complete all parts of the table and then answer the questions below.

What percentage of shapes selected were red?

What percentage of shapes selected were green?

Were more than 20% of the shapes selected blue?

What was the highest percentage of shapes chosen?

Extension

Pairs add an orange manipulative

Can you predict the amount of times you will choose a green shape when you use 5 colours instead of 4?

Students should set up an investigation to test your prediction.
