              Comparing Positive and Negative Numbers

              Students learn about comparing positive and negative numbers and calculating the difference between the two.  Throughout the lesson students use the greater than (>) and less than (<) symbols to make comparisons.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use a number line to compare the size of positive and negative numbers.
              • Most students should be able to use inequality notation to compare the size of numbers.
              • Some students should be able to compare the size and magnitude of positive or negative fractions and decimals.

              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 […]
