Frequency Trees

Students learn how to create frequency trees from two-way tables and written descriptions.  As learning progress students are challenged to calculate a probability from data presented in a frequency tree.

At the start of the lesson students recap entering data in a partially completed frequency table.  The end of the lesson challenges students to complete a frequency with six different events.

Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to complete a frequency tree from a two-way table.
• Most students should be able to record, describe and analyse the frequency of outcomes using frequency trees
• Some students should be able to record, describe and analyse the frequency and probability of outcomes using frequency trees.

Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.

Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]
