# 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.

#### Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

#### Angles in Polygons

There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
