              Describing Number Patterns

              Students learn describing number patterns on a term to term basis.  More able students tackle Fibonacci and geometric sequences.At the start of the lesson students recap using function machines to find a series of outputs.  In the main part of the lesson they learn how to describe, continue and predict missing terms in a sequence.  At the end of the lesson they encounter the sequences created from the Binomial triangle.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to describe the term to term rule of simple linear sequences.
              • Most students should be able to describe the term to term rule and calculate missing terms of a numerical sequence.
              • Some students should be able to describe the term to term rule of sequences involving fractions, decimals and percentages.

              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 […]
