              Sharing to a Ratio

              The start of the lesson is used to review sharing a sum of money equally between three people.   The development phase builds on this by demonstrating how to share amounts to a ratio.   The plenary challenges students to consider a problem in context by sharing to a ratio and calculating proportional amounts.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to share to a ratio where the total shares are a factor of the amount.
              • Most students should be able to share to a ratio by calculating the value of a single share.
              • Some students should be able to derive and simplify a ratio involving three terms and share to any amount.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
