              Calculating a Probability from Sample Space Diagrams

              Students learn how to create a sample space diagram to find the probability of two or more events. As learning progresses students are challenged to find the events when given a partially completed sample space diagram.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to complete a sample space diagram given two sets of outcomes.
              • Most students should be able to calculate a theoretical probability using a sample space diagram.
              • Some students should be able to determine a set of events given a sample space diagram.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]

              Priorities for the Spring Term

              At the start of the Spring Term these are three main priorities for me as the Head of Mathematics.

              Mutually Exclusive Outcomes and Events

              I teach mutually exclusive outcomes directly after students have encountered Venn diagrams. This is the fifth Year 8 Probability lesson.
