              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.
