Probability Reasoning Tasks

Probability Reasoning Tasks

Several tasks all based on the infamous ‘Hannah’s Sweets’ Edexcel GCSE question about combined probability. These tasks are designed to improve students’ mathematical reasoning and were created as part of the Mathematical Reasoning at GCSE project run by Cambridge Maths Hub. The tasks vary in difficulty, and include work on writing expressions, mutually exclusive and independent events, using probability diagrams (probability/frequency trees, Venn and 2-way table), combining probabilities of multiple events and forming and solving quadratic equations. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class. The Venn diagram task is an excellent idea I swiped from the amazing Mr Barton. A similar set of tasks on a different application of quadratic expressions can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/algebraic-area-reasoning-tasks-11838759. Please please consider leaving some feedback. I’d be really interested to hear which tasks you chose and how you used them!

Factorising into Single Brackets

Factorising into Single Brackets

A complete, fully differentiated lesson with examples using the grid method and a range of clear progress checks before each RAGed task (with answers) on the following learning objectives: Understand how to find the highest common factor of a number and an algebraic term. Use the HCF to factorise an expression into a single bracket. This lesson can be used with KS3 or KS4 students as it also involves factorising into a set of single brackets. This PowerPoint also shows clear progression through the lesson using the learning objectives.

Manipulating Expressions - question and answer generator

Manipulating Expressions - question and answer generator

Generates different levels of practice questions (and answers) for simplifying, expanding and factorising expressions. Great for quick fluency starter or printed homework task. The "macro-enabled" (.xlsm) version is best, but if you don't trust / can't run macros then the ".xlsx" version works (though far less versatile).
