OCR MEI Statistics 2 : Poisson Distribution 2

OCR MEI Statistics 2 : Poisson Distribution 2

This is a presentation that covers: combining Poisson distributions and using the Poisson as an approximation to the Binomial. The worksheet is a set of past paper questions that cover finding basic Poisson probabilities, using tables to find Poisson probabilities, and using the Poisson approximation.

S2 Statistics Mathematics A Level (Edexcel AQA OCR) Posters - Poisson Distribution

S2 Statistics Mathematics A Level (Edexcel AQA OCR) Posters - Poisson Distribution

A large proportion of students are visual learners, this means bright colours, bold diagrams, and image repetition will help when studying. Enclosed are a range of posters for A Level Statistics on any exam board. The posters are A4 documents, split into 4 boxes with bold colourful information in each. They are well used scattered around a room or the house, so constant viewing of the posters will help you remember the information that in on them. This is a technique that I have passed on to help many students through GCSE and A level. The topics included are: Poisson Distribution

Mathematics Statistics 1 Lessons

Mathematics Statistics 1 Lessons

Mathematics Statistics 1 Lessons This is a set of lessons for S1 Statistics 1 A level Mathematics. The resources includes Powerpoints. Powerpoint include: Learning objectives Questions on the topic Important information written in red boxes to scaffold learning. Topics: Introduction Averages Measures of Spread Correlation Regression Probability Binomial Normal Theory Confidence Interval Revision Poisson I hope you enjoy these lessons, they can be used in the following ways: To deliver a course with reduced planning but not reducing quality of the lesson. As a basis for an observation lesson to save time preparing resources. To give to students for out of lesson learning. To support teachers who are new to this topic, again to reduce planning time. As a bases for your own lessons where you can include exam questions to each presentation. As an activity where the questions can be printed and cut out.

Statistics 2 - 15 min exam question challenges

Statistics 2 - 15 min exam question challenges

A collection of exam question challenges for the Edexcel Statistics 2 specification. Each worksheet consists of 2 or 3 sets of questions arranged in difficulty order. Each set of questions should take between 15-20 minutes to complete. How they are used can be up to the teacher, I have used these as either starter or plenary activities during review lessons where students are given a choice of which set of questions to complete in the 15 minute time limit. Then in pairs or groups work through any problems they may have encountered.

Binomial and Poisson Topic Mat

Binomial and Poisson Topic Mat

A mat to summarise key concepts from the S2 topics Binomial/Poisson Distributions (Edexcel). I also include a suggestion for how the mat could be filled out. I usually use it as a plenary – ask the pupils for the key ideas from the lesson and collectively fill in sections over a sequence of lessons. At the end of a topic they have a topic mat from which to revise from. I also photocopy them on different coloured paper so they act as dividers in students’ folders. I am creating these resources as part of an action research project at my school looking at preparation for improving students retention across a two year linear course and trying to bring the science of memory into the classroom. If you have used these resources and have any comments/feedback/ideas please comment or contact me - thanks!

Poisson Distribution and Estimation using t-distribution

Poisson Distribution and Estimation using t-distribution

A presentation that explains to the students what the Poisson distribution is and how to solve a range of problems using the Poisson distribution. This includes the graphs of Poisson distributions as well as the mean, variance and standard deviation. A presentation that introduces the t-distribution and how it is used for samples below a size of 30. It shows the students how to use the standard tables to find confidence intervals using t-distribution. SMART Notebook Express presentations can be used for free by using SMART online or by downloading SMART software, also free, I use it because it allows a more interactive presentation than a powerpoint. Just search 'SMART Notebook Express' and try it with my free SMART resource.

MEI stats 2 power point presentation

MEI stats 2 power point presentation

This presentation covers the Poisson distribution, The normal distribution, samples and hypothesis testing and Bivariate data. Including approximations and hints and tips. The resource is also extremely useful just before exams if printed out as flash cards to induce mathematical thinking before students enter an exam

Statistics: (S2) Poisson Distribution (+ questions)

Statistics: (S2) Poisson Distribution (+ questions)

This presentation contains a whole lesson looking at the Poisson Distribution (18 slides), but there is enough material to spread over 2 lessons, depending on the amount of time you have per lesson for A-Level! It comes with excellent past exam questions with answers. Specifically, this lesson is for teaching ... what is Poisson distribution and normal distribution are and how and when to use the normal distribution as an approximation and approximation using the Poisson distribution. I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson, and included plenty of examples etc... and I have found to be a great resource to help pupils understand and make excellent progress. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thank you.

A2 Linear Combinations of Random Variables

A2 Linear Combinations of Random Variables

***IF YOU LIKE THIS PLEASE CHECK OUT MY OTHER UNITS FOR A2 MATHS. BUY EACH UNIT SEPARATELY OR GET THE WHOLE PACK FOR £10!*** These are my teaching notes for the CIE A2 Statistics Linear Combinations Unit. They include: - Linear Combinations of Variables - Sum of independent Poisson Variables - Sum and Difference of independent Normal Distributions Notes include examples and explanations - essentially everything you would hope your students to copy down during the unit. The textbook exercise references are for the Nelson Mathematics Probability and Statistics Text (978-1-4085-1563-1). Which I highly recommend as an excellent text and which as been endorsed by Cambridge. Great for beginning teachers and also useful for students who are absent as you can print out a copy for their notes.
