              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.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
