KS2 Probability

Discussion in 'Primary' started by cyquiz, Mar 20, 2012.

  1. Hi.
    When doing KS2 probability questions (the "what is the chance of drawing a blue ball ?" type, what do you expect of the fractional result ?
    e.g. if there are 4 red and 4 blue, is the result 4/8 acceptable, is the pupil expected to simplify this to 1/2 or are the questions set so that this is not an issue ?
    TIA

    Any equivalent fraction would be accepted - certainly according to KS2 mark schemes!
