              Sample Space Diagrams

              Students learn how to organise all the permutations of multiple events using tables and sample space diagrams.  Once all permutations are discovered they learn how to compare the likelihood of the different events using probabilities.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to list in a systematic and logical manner all the permutations of two events.
              • Most students should be able to list in a systematic and logical manner all the permutations of two events in a Sample Space Diagram.
              • Some students should be able to use a Sample Space Diagram to calculate probabilities of two or more combined events.

              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 […]

              How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

              The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]
