### Introducing Probability with Fractions

Students learn how to write probabilities to describe the likelihood of an event. As learning progresses students are challenged to create a series of events for fixed probabilities.

At the start of the lesson students consider possible outcomes from a series combined events. In the plenary they are introduced to listing the permutations of multiple events.

**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to write the probability of a single event as a fraction.
- Most students should be able to write the probability of a single event as a simplified fraction.
- Some students should be able to write the probability of multiple events as a simplified fraction.
