              Calculating Probabilities from Two-Way Tables

              Students learn how to calculate a probability from a two-way table.  As learning progresses students learn how to create a a two-way table from a written description and consider how the sample size changes for specific groups.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to complete a two-way table.
              • Most students should be able to use two-way tables to calculate theoretical probabilities.
              • Some students should be able to understand the change in sample size for different criteria.

              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.
