              Writing Probabilities

              The start of the lesson is used to review systematically ordering possible permutations of combined events.  The development phase builds on this by introducing using fractions to measure the likelihood of events.  This is later extended to considering basic ‘or’ scenarios through adding fractions.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to write the theoretical probability of a single event as a simplified fraction.
              • Most students should be able to write a theoretical probability of combined events as a simplified fraction.
              • Some students should be able to calculate a theoretical probability from a two-way table.

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]

              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 […]
