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.

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.

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.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]
