Introducing Probability with Fractions

Students learn how to write probabilities to describe the likelihood of an event.  As learning progresses students are challenged to create a series of events for fixed probabilities.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to write the probability of a single event as a fraction.
  • Most students should be able to write the probability of a single event as a simplified fraction.
  • Some students should be able to write the probability of multiple events as a simplified fraction.

How to Simplify Surds

When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]
