KS3 and GCSE Probability Starters

KS3 and GCSE Probability Starters

A selection of 8 starters on probability related to real life which are suitable for KS3 and GCSE students. The starters encourage students to think laterally, being similar to brainteasers. Topics covered include: experimental probability, listing outcomes, sample space diagrams, relative frequency, tree diagrams, probability scales and permutations/combinations. Each starter begins with a problem or statement which the children must decide is true or false through investigation, giving reasons why this is the case. This exercise would be perfect for encouraging discussions as students may present a wide variety of explanations.

How to calculate the number of Enigma machine settings explaining combinations and permutations.

How to calculate the number of Enigma machine settings explaining combinations and permutations.

This is an 8 page booklet which takes the pupils through the maths of calculating the number of ways an Enigma machine can be set up, using both permutations (the order of the rotors does matter) and combinations, where the order in which the plug board is set up doesn't matter. The first two pages lead the pupils through the various calculations leading to the answer of approximately 158 million billion ways or 158,962,555,217,826,360,000 ways to be precise! The remaining six pages explain the difference between permutations and combinations.
