Scatter Graphs

Scatter Graphs

KS3 and KS4/GCSE activities on Scatter Diagrams/Scatter Graphs. Includes * a cheat sheet that I print on A3 in colour to put on the desks for them to refer to (can also double as a classroom display * a quick sorting activity where students pair up types of correlation to pictures of graphs and pairs of variables that would match each graph * a worksheet where students decide which scenario must go with each graph, and give reasons, and a prompt sheet with some suggested generic reasons for those who need it * some exam questions that I have edited a little to include parts asking students to identify types of correlation and describe the relationships in context

Communities and Cities

Communities and Cities

A PowerPoint of activities based on communities and cities/urbanisation. This includes: Pictures of various communities (rural, urban and suburban) that can be used for a warmer quiz introducing the subject of different communities. Smaller versions of each picture (4 x one page) which can be printed out and used for sorting activities (I had 3 teams sort them and make a poster using them to compare characteristics of the 3 different types of community at the start of my unit on communities). A maths lesson on rounding which compares 5 large cities. This was used to raise awareness of the rapid increase in urbanisation across the world. A table for students to organise their rounded figures and fill in information about each city. Pictures of each city - printed and used by the students to complete their table. The students then used their tables to make bar charts comparing the population of the 5 featured cities.

Mountainous Maths Lesson

Mountainous Maths Lesson

Simple maths lesson used when learning about mountaineering as part of my PYP Unit on Exploration. The questions challenge all and include questions that practice many different maths skills: Comparison and ordering of 4-digit numbers Adding two 4-digit numbers together Adding five 2-digit numbers together Subtracting 4-digit numbers from one another Finding averages (using a calculator) As an extension I had the children round numbers to the nearest 100m and 1000m.

Understanding Set Notation

Understanding Set Notation

Students learn how to find the union and intersection of elements using basic set notation. As learning progresses students consider the complement of a set while reviewing basic number properties. At the start of the lesson students recap using sample space diagrams to find the probability of cracking a code. The plenary is used to assess progress against the differentiated learning objective through a typical exam question. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to list the elements of a set. Most students should be able to enumerate sets and unions/intersections of sets systematically. Some students should be able to find the complement of a set. Mr Mathematics’ annual members have instant access to all lessons across Key Stage 3 and 4. Termly GCSE assessments are also available to monitor student’s progress. Visit mr-mathematics for * Fully planned and differentiated maths lessons for the GCSE 9 - 1 and new Key Stage 3 specification * Schemes of work based on pedagogy and teacher support for Key Stage 3 and 9 – 1 GCSE courses.

Statistics: Probability 3 - Theoretical Probability 2 (+ resources)

Statistics: Probability 3 - Theoretical Probability 2 (+ resources)

This is the second of two whole lesson looking at theoretical probability. This lesson looks at 2 dice in various situations, snooker balls, playing cards and building on the first lesson to deepen pupil's understanding of theoretical probability. The lesson comes with a starter with handout support, lesson objectives, key words, different activities, two tarsia activities with answers and plenary. It forms a part of an excellent series / bundle on probability, which I highly recommend as a sequence of lessons. Lesson 1 - Probability Scale Lesson 2 - Theoretical Probability 1 Lesson 3 - Theoretical Probability 2 Lesson 4 - Relative Frequency Lesson 5 - Tree Diagrams NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and if you do purchase then please remember to rate and feedback as it is really helpful, thank you.

Calculating Probabilities from Two-Way Tables

Calculating Probabilities from Two-Way Tables

Students learn how to calculate a probability from a two-way table. As learning progresses students learn how to create a a two-way table from a written description and consider how the sample size changes for specific groups. The start of the lesson recaps reading data presented in a two-way table. The end of the lesson is used to assess the progress made agains the differentiated learning objectives through an exam style questions. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to complete a two-way table. Most students should be able to use two-way tables to calculate theoretical probabilities. Some students should be able to understand the change in sample size for different criteria.
