              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.

              Preparing Students for a Mathematics Exam

              Preparing students for a mathematics exam takes time, patience and careful planning.  In this blog I will share my ideas for teaching students how to prepare for their final exams.  These are strategies that have worked well for me and I have see work well for others.  Creative writing to formulate ideas Students need space […]

              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 […]
