              Calculations with Limits of Accuracy

              Students learn how to find the limits of accuracy in calculations using the upper and lower bounds of different measurements.  As learning progresses students move from finding the maximum and minimum areas and volumes to substituting known limits into various formulae.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the maximum and minimum sum and difference using limits of accuracy.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the maximum and minimum product and quotient using the limits of accuracy.
              • Some students should be able to calculate problems in context using limits of accuracy.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
