              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.

              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 […]

              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 […]
