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.Maths lessons to engage and inspire.

How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]

Calculations with Percentages

Students learn how to find a percentage of an amount using calculator and non-calculator methods.  As learning progresses they use decimal multipliers to find a percentage change and calculate a simple interest in financial mathematics. This topic follows on from Fractions, Decimals and Percentages and takes place in Year 8 Term 5. Calculations with Percentages […]
