Probability Experiment

Students carry out a probability experiment to explore the relationship between theoretical and experimental probability.   Throughout the course of the lesson students are challenged to assign a set of events given fixed probabilities, design an experiment to test their accuracy and discuss their findings using bias.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to determine a set of overlapping events given probabilities.
  • Most students should be able to design an experiment to compare theoretical and experimental probabilities.
  • Some students should be able to compare theoretical and experimental probabilities and understand the concept of relative frequency.

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 […]
