GCSE revision lessons

GCSE revision lessons

Here is a small group of revision lessons I have recently used for my year 11 students. These have been written with them in mind and cover the types of questions they were struggling with. Generally I tend to go through one or two at the board before they attempt the others. Revision lessons included are Probability tree diagrams Distance speed time Ingredient questions Flow diagrams and some general “wordy” questions that can be troubling for many students.

Laurel vs. Yanny Lesson

Laurel vs. Yanny Lesson

This is a Powerpoint lesson and worksheet based on the ‘Laurel or Yanny’ soundclip debate that is going viral! When people listen to the clip, some people seem to hear it as ‘Laurel’ and others seem to hear ‘Yanny’. This fun lesson is a simple data handling activity that can be made suitable for KS2 or KS1 classes. Pupils will listen to the sound clip and then record the responses in a frequency table and block graph, Included in the Powerpoint are also some data processing questions, starting with straight forward questions that simply require intepreting of the data for younger classes and going on to more difficult questions involving fractions, percentages and ratios for KS2. Included in this resource: Powerpoint file (fully editable) Worksheet

Experimental Probability using Revels Sweets

Experimental Probability using Revels Sweets

A great way to recap probability or introduce the idea of experimental probability and tree diagrams. Lots of avenues for extension. I used 1 standard (small) pack of revels between 3 pupils and let them work in groups - watch out for allergies! You can build the tables and tree diagram for one group on the board if necessary but it’s also handy to discuss good data collection tables and bad ones. There are lots of questions to answer on the slides but you can also extend groups to create their own questions and investigate their data further. Discussing which group had the best pack based on the contents is also sure to raise a debate! If you use this resource please leave a review!

Go and Find - Probability Revision Activity

Go and Find - Probability Revision Activity

A fun class activity. I call it “Go and Find”. Give each pair of pupils an answer sheet, and they have to ‘collect’ tabs of paper from around the classroom, each with an answer on them. There aren’t enough answers for every pair to get one each, so they are competing against eachother. They lose points for incorrect answers, and there are a few red herrings to catch misconceptions. Takes a bit of set up but well worth it! Answers, pupil instructions and example of pupil work included. Can be adapted for different abilities, just be sure to change the answers on the excel document. Please leave feedback if you use this in class; I haven’t seen resources like this on tes so would love to know how it works in other classrooms!

California Rescue Centre - Probability task

California Rescue Centre - Probability task

This was a plenary I created for an interview class on probability. The task requires students to work in groups and decide which two sites to build a rescue centre for the Californian mudslides and wildfires. Literacy and verbal reasoning required in addition to numeracy skills as the information pack may change students’ minds… Students enjoyed the exercise and the real-life application of what they had just learnt during the lesson.

Combined Events: Probability Worksheet

Combined Events: Probability Worksheet

A worksheet containing two questions on combined events. The first one looks at all the possible outcomes of picking a disk out of one box AND/OR one out of the other box. It then has some questions on the probabilities of certain outcomes. The second question looks at the possible combinations of pizzas given some rules (ex. you can have 2 veggies and 1 meat on the pizza) followed by some probability questions around this. Great way to save students from writing questions down. This worksheet can easily be turned into slides or an over head to simplify taking up these questions as a class.

Combined Events Worksheet

Combined Events Worksheet

This probability worksheet contains two examples. It requires students to fill in a two way table for the possible outcomes of rolling two dice and summing them together, then answer probability questions based on this. The second question follows a similar format but is on the sum of the outcomes of spinning a spinner twice. This worksheet helps hammer home to students that there are 36 possible outcomes (not 12) when rolling two dice and adding the results. This worksheet is a great way to save students time from writing down questions and creating tables. It allows more time to be focused on the mathematics and can easily be put up on a slide of overhead to take up the worksheet as a class.

Choice: Probability

Choice: Probability

A work sheet on choice in probability. This worksheet contains two questions involving Drake and one extra example. This requires students to create tree diagrams to figure out the number of ticket options for a drake concert, the number of outfit options drake has etc. and also asks students to then find the probability of certain combinations. I used this with my Transition years (15 year olds) and they enjoyed it.

Deal or No Deal Probability Game Resources & Rules

Deal or No Deal Probability Game Resources & Rules

I came across this blog online about re-creating a Deal or No Deal maths game for a probability lesson: http://www.teachforever.com/2008/02/lesson-idea-probability-using-deal-or.html The blog writer had purchased a Deal or No Deal Board Game set. I did not have access to this, so made all the resources for this myself. I also wrote an adapted version of the rules that would better suit my needs for it in the classroom. The resources here maybe could have a polish, and not all are necessary for the game but it took me a while to put this altogether and work out the rules, so I am hoping to save the time of someone else. Necessary for game: Rules Board with Probability Recommend: Cash cards for authenticity Optional: Envelope Labels (you could just use envelopes or pieces of paper) Bank Cards (the same as cash cards but for the banker, I did not use) Card backs (just to make the cards look nicer) I am running this with 2 lower set year 9 groups, but it could be used with higher year 7s through to lower 10s.

Expected Frequency and Relative Frequency Worksheet

Expected Frequency and Relative Frequency Worksheet

This resource includes the definition and formula of both relative and expected frequency at the top of it. On the worksheet there is 3 questions relating to both expected frequency and relative frequency. Great for secondary level. This worksheet allows students to differentiate between expected and relative frequency. Question 3 relates to the life expectancy of teenagers (The expected frequency of students who will live past 101) . This allows for a good discussion for when the relative frequency of this can be found.

Shakespeare starter tasks for every subject!

Shakespeare starter tasks for every subject!

I’ve designed this for the whole school, specifically to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday. There are some video links for students to watch but there should be a link to each subject (apart from ICT - apologies) The idea is that students are made aware of the idea that Shakespeare is applicable to every subject and not just English. There are also form time activities for students to complete with tutors.
