              Probability Scale

              At the start of the lesson students match an event with the keyword which most closely matches the likelihood of its occurrence.  The development phase builds on this through the introduction of the probability scale as a means to associate values to likelihoods so comparisons can be made.  The plenary provides the opportunity for students to create a poster by placing their own events along the probability scale.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use keywords to describe the likelihood of events.
              • Most students should be able to compare the likelihood of events using their position along the probability scale.
              • Some students should be able to create a series of events that are placed along a probability scale.

              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 […]
