Relative frequency (experimental probability) is used when probability is being estimated using the outcomes of an experiment or trial, when theoretical probability cannot be used. In this class students will learn the difference between theoretical and experimental probability and how to calculate theoretical probability. This class is aimed at students in Years 8 - 10 and is great to solidify knowledge on the concept.
