Probability Trees

Students are introduced to probability trees as a means to systematically calculate probabilities when two or more independent events are considered.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to draw a Probability Tree for two independent events.
  • Most students should be able to draw and use a probability tree to calculate the probability of independent events.
  • Some students should be able to draw use a probability tree with three or more branches to calculate the probability of independent events.

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related.

Plotting Quadratic Graphs on Cartesian Axes

In recent examiner reports it is noted how important it is for students to understand the properties of a parabola  when plotting quadratic graphs on Cartesian axes.  Students who have a secure understanding of parabolas can use them to correct miscalculated values in their table of results and are more likely to attain full marks […]
