Statistics: (S1) Normal Distribution 1 - An Introduction

Statistics: (S1) Normal Distribution 1 - An Introduction

This is the first of four lessons on the normal distribution, which introduces the topic as well as goes into looking at the standard normal distribution. This is an excellent resource, with lots and lots of excellent teaching slides, 28 slides. Specifically, this lesson is for teaching what is the normal distribution is, the criteria for using it and how to use lookup tables to solve problems that are in a standard normal form. I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson and have found this is one of best teaching topics and I have been very successful in getting ALL pupils to understand the normal distribution and feel confident for ALL types of questions that they may have to face.

Statistics: (S2) Normal distribution 4 - Approximation for Binomial Distribution (+ worksheet)

Statistics: (S2) Normal distribution 4 - Approximation for Binomial Distribution (+ worksheet)

This is the fourth of a series of lessons on the normal distribution. It is applicable for S2 in the UK, but international A-Level has this as a part of the S1 specification. 26 slides. This lesson needs to proceed lessons on the binomial and normal distributions, both available as a lesson in my shop. Specifically, this lesson is for teaching when to use the normal distribution as an approximation for a binomial distribution. It looks at why we use and looks in a lot of detail at common mistakes pupil’s make in order for pupil’s to avoid doing it and I have had excellent results on this topic using this resource. I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson and includes plenty of examples, superb teaching slides with lots of custom animation, keywords, learning objectives, differentiated questions and basic plenary.

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.

The ultimate Mathematics International Baccalaureate Standard Level Revision Pack

The ultimate Mathematics International Baccalaureate Standard Level Revision Pack

I have split the entire course into 10 lessons (content includes much more!). Each lesson includes a bank of exam questions related to the topics with answers; a PowerPoint; Extra questions; and a 20 minute test. The tests are written from the "Extra questions" so be aware if you are using the "Extra Questions" in class. Easily more than 10 lessons worth but use it as you choose. I revised one lesson, tested (and peer marked) the next lesson and began the revision for the following section. *** 100s of exam questions *** *** 10 revision lesson PowerPoints *** *** 10 mini tests ***

Use Data to Draw Inferences - 7.SP.2

Use Data to Draw Inferences - 7.SP.2

Collect and utilize multiple samples of data to make generalizations about a population. Attention should be paid to variations in the samples Scaffolded lesson provides for classroom differentiation. Can be used as a lesson leader, guided practice, independent practice, for cooperative learning and math centers, or as an assessment. Use with smartboard, projector, computer, pad or as printable. Lesson is complete - NO PREP. Editable version included. Objectives: - Make inferences based on of multiple random samples - Answer questions regarding populations and sampling - Determine total population based on samples - Make predictions regarding total populations - Describe a model for sampling dependent on population Includes 6 practice pages and answer keys.

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.
