              Stratified Sampling

              Students learn the difference between different types of sampling methods and how to calculate a stratified sample size using equal proportions.  As learning progresses students are challenged to work the problem in reverse by finding the population of each strata given the sampling size.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to find out what proportion of the population is in each stratum.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the number of people to be sampled in a stratum.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the total stratified sample size given the number of people sampled in a stratum

              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.
