              Probability and Expectation

              The start of the lesson is used to review generating data sets from theoretical probabilities.  The development phase extends this  through using a theoretical or experimental probability to calculate an expected frequency.  Mutually exclusive and relative frequency are also considered throughout the lesson.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use an experimental or theoretical probability to calculate an expected frequency.
              • Most students should be able to use the sum of mutually exclusive events to calculate an expected frequency.
              • Some students should be able to use an expected frequency to calculate a sample size.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
