Union and Intersection of Sets

Students learn how to calculate the union and intersection of sets using Venn diagrams.  As learning progresses students are challenged to use the union and intersection to calculate a probability.At the start of the lesson recaps both collecting like terms and using Venn diagrams to calculate a probability.  The plenary challenges students to apply set notation to three independent events within a Venn diagram.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to identify a union and intersect using set notation.
  • Most students should be able to calculate a probability from a Venn diagram using set notation.
  • Some students should be able to use set notation with probability trees and Venn diagrams.

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]

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. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]

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 […]
