# Permutations of Two Events

## Permutations of Two Events

Students learn how to list all the permutations of two events to calculate to calculate their probabilities.  As learning progresses sample space diagrams are introduced for the more able.

The start of the lesson recaps comparing theoretical probabilities using the probability scale.  At the end of the lesson students are challenged to write the different permutations of four people sitting in a row.

Differentiated Learning Objectives

• All students should be able to list all the permutations for two independent events.
• Most students should be able to list all the permutations for two events and find a probability.
• Some students should be able to calculate the probability of a combined event using sample space diagrams.

#### 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 […]

#### Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences

Students learn how to generate and describe arithmetic and geometric sequences on a  position-to-term basis.  Learning progresses from plotting and reading coordinates in the first quadrant to describing geometric sequences using the nth term. This unit takes place in Term 4 of Year 10 and is followed by the equations of straight line graphs. Arithmetic […]
