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.

Solving Two Step Equations using the Balance Method

An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another.  To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal.  There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear.  In this blog I write about how I […]

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 […]
