              Mutually Exclusive Events

              The start of the lesson is used to review the probability scale and theoretical probability.  Students extend on this in the development phase through the introduction of mutually exclusive events.  As learning progresses probabilities are given in the form of decimals within tables.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to understand that mutually exclusive events have a sum of one.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the probability of one event when the other is known if both are mutually exclusive.
              • Some students should be able to calculate probabilities of mutually exclusive events using tables.

              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 […]
