Calculating Probability Revision

Calculating Probability Revision

An Excel Workbook containing a spreadsheets to practice the GCSE skill of calculating probabilities. The spreadsheet has an associated answer sheet going through each question. The questions have multiple choice answers, generated using the answer and potential misconceptions. If the correct letter is given it turns the answer box green, or red if incorrect. Note that your computer will need Microsoft Excel with Calculation Options set to 'Manual' and Macros enabled. There is a set up sheet which gives some advice on how to do this. Clicking the 'More Questions' black square will clear the sheet and recalculate questions and answers. Excel's Zoom Bar can be used to scale the sheet up and down to fit on your monitor. Note that as the questions are randomised, some questions could be repeated. With a constant number of re-generated questions (and answers), students can practice this to their heart's content. After all, practice makes perfect!

Higher or Lower?

Higher or Lower?

Superb starter or plenary for any maths lesson ... the children love this game! This presentation includes 8 games of 'Higher or Lower' - 2 games containing numbers in the 10 times tables - 2 games containing numbers in the 5 times tables - 2 games containing numbers in the 2 times tables - 2 games containing numbers from 1 to 10 How to play: 1. Flip over the first card. 2. Ask a child to say if they think the next card will be 'higher' or 'lower' than the card displayed. If they get the answer correct, they continue. If they get the answer wrong, start over with another child. 3. You can make each game easier by displaying all the possible numbers. Then just cross them off as they appear in the game (the children will know exactly what numbers are remaining thus increasing their chance of winning).
