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.

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]

Solving Inequalities using a Number Line

Students should be able to represent the solutions to an inequality on a number line, using set notation or as a list of integer values.  Here’s how I teach using the balance method for solving inequalities using a number line. Matching inequalities, Number sets and Number Lines At the start of the lesson students recap […]

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]
