# 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.

#### Area of Compound Shapes

To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]

#### Priorities for the Spring Term

At the start of the Spring Term these are three main priorities for me as the Head of Mathematics.

#### Mutually Exclusive Outcomes and Events

I teach mutually exclusive outcomes directly after students have encountered Venn diagrams. This is the fifth Year 8 Probability lesson.
