Probabilities That Add Up to One

Students learn how mutually exclusive and exhaustive events are represented in a Venn diagram and probabilities that add up to one.  As learning progresses they use mutually exclusive events to calculate the probability of an event not happening.
Differentiated Learning Objective
  • All students should be able to identify mutually exclusive events.
  • Most students should be able to understand that the probabilities of all possible outcomes sum to 1.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the probability of an event not happening.

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 […]
