Predicting Outcomes using Probability

Students learn how to predict outcomes using probability.  As learning progresses students understand the effect of sample size in determining the accuracy of the predictions.  More able students combine this with sample space diagrams.At the start of the lesson students recap estimating probabilities.  In the plenary students apply their learning to judge the appropriateness of statistical conclusions based on probability.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate an expected frequency using theoretical probability.
  • Most students should be able to calculate an expected frequency using relative frequency.
  • Some students should be able to plot relative frequency graphs to understand the effects of sample size when calculating an expected frequency.

Knowing my team have all the information and resources they need to teach their students gives me confidence we will start the term in the best possible way.  Mathematics Teaching and Learning Folder All teachers receive a folder […]

Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]
