Permutations of Two Events

Students learn how to list all the permutations of two events to calculate to calculate their probabilities.  As learning progresses sample space diagrams are introduced for the more able.The start of the lesson recaps comparing theoretical probabilities using the probability scale.  At the end of the lesson students are challenged to write the different permutations of four people sitting in a row.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to list all the permutations for two independent events.
  • Most students should be able to list all the permutations for two events and find a probability.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the probability of a combined event using sample space diagrams.

Calculating the Volume of a Pyramid

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh.  In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]
