              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.

              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 […]
