Calculating Probability
This is a double lesson for Probability, it starts with a multiplication starter. The probability words are then introduced and an answer sheet is embedded for the students to write their own sentences on (they generally struggle with evens, don't allow them to have weather). A power point is embedded to introduce the number line and the students have to work out where the images or Yoda and Elvis go (it may sound odd but it will be more obvious when you see it!) There are parts where the students can come up to the board and put the fractions/percentages and decimals in the correct place (if you print these pages out, everyone can do them). There are questions on throwing dice and pulling coloured balls out of a bag which can be done practically. The Monty Hall problems is included with videos, then the game is on a few slides along with a game linked to the net. The plenary gets the students into groups at the front of the class and they have to work out if they are correct.
