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.

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 […]

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]

Plotting Quadratic Graphs on Cartesian Axes

In recent examiner reports it is noted how important it is for students to understand the properties of a parabola  when plotting quadratic graphs on Cartesian axes.  Students who have a secure understanding of parabolas can use them to correct miscalculated values in their table of results and are more likely to attain full marks […]
