Frequency Trees

Students learn how to create frequency trees from two-way tables and written descriptions.  As learning progress students are challenged to calculate a probability from data presented in a frequency tree.At the start of the lesson students recap entering data in a partially completed frequency table.  The end of the lesson challenges students to complete a frequency with six different events.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to complete a frequency tree from a two-way table.
  • Most students should be able to record, describe and analyse the frequency of outcomes using frequency trees
  • Some students should be able to record, describe and analyse the frequency and probability of outcomes using frequency trees.
