Abstract Two combined Year 7 classes in a Queensland primary school participated in a unit of chance lessons involving six games and activities over a period of two weeks. Evidence was found for significant short-term improvements in students' enjoyment and motivation relating to chance, decreases in anxiety about chance, and improvements in students' perceptions about the usefulness of learning about chance.
