              Conditional Probability

              The start of the lesson is used to review calculating the probability of two independent events using a tree diagram.  To extend on this in the development phase students begin to consider conditional probability where the outcome of the second event is dependent on the first.   The plenary consolidates the learning through a traditional exam style question.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to draw a tree diagram for conditional events.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the probability for two conditional events using a tree diagram.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the probability for two or more conditional events using a tree diagram.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
