Abstract

Data Handling, Statistics and Probability have gained prominence in school mathematics over the last 5-6 years and thanks to the pandemic we all understand how crucial it is to have a basic understanding of probability. This topic is included in Classes 7 and 8 according to the NCERT syllabus and is part of the respective data handling chapters. However, the probability portions of these two chapters seem very disjoint from the rest of the data handling parts. The integration happens later in Class 9 when chapter-wise statistics and probability are separated! However, one does not need to wait that long. Spinners provide an excellent way to integrate probability within the rest of data handling along with many other benefits.
