Statistics: Probability 6 - Tree Diagrams (+ worksheets)

Statistics: Probability 6 - Tree Diagrams (+ worksheets)

This is a WHOLE lesson on tree diagrams, looking at examples of replacement and non replacement and one example of conditional probability. This lesson in particular has very good teaching slides. A couple of a-level questions with answers. Lesson objectives, plenary, key words and starter also included. This PPT is suitable for GCSE and A-Level standards. It touches/introduces slightly the concept of conditional probability, but lesson two will look more at conditional probability in more detail, which is purely a-level.This is also great for GCSE Statistics.

Speed Dating Conditional Probability

Speed Dating Conditional Probability

This activity worked really well; the idea is that one half of the class will answer question A, and the other question B. Students with question A will then 'speed date' and explain their question to students with question B (approx. 3-5 mins). The 'dating buzzer' rings and B students move onto their next date. This process is repeated; after students swap over, B explains and A dates. The students really enjoyed to opportunity to explore different methods to solve a problem, to listen to others and review one another's solutions. Overall the activity got positive feedback from the students.

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.

Statistics: Permutations and Combinations (3 lessons) - Perfect for A-Level

Statistics: Permutations and Combinations (3 lessons) - Perfect for A-Level

This presentation contains 3 whole lessons, depending on the amount of time you have per lesson for A-Level! Specifically these lessons are for teaching ... permutations and combinations; the differences between the two, looking at where the formulas come from and some of the various exceptions/ exam style questions that make you think more !!I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lessons, from beginning to end, including starters and a plenaries, a look at the lottery and my infamous pizza challenge !! I have found both these PPT's to be a very effective way of getting ALL pupils to understand the difference between combinations and permutations and that questions are never that straight forward and that it is a topic that requires a decent degree of thinking !!NOTE: Feel free to visit my shop for many other excellent free and premium resources and please rate and feedback as that is really helpful, thanks.

Arrangements and Permutations - NEW GCSE

Arrangements and Permutations - NEW GCSE

This is a PowerPoint I made for my Year 11s. It's hard to know what to call it really - the Pearson revision guide makes no reference to arrangements or permutations but this is basically what the questions in the sample assessments and mock seem to be leaning towards, albeit at a pretty basic level, so this doesn't include any repetitions or really go into the content you'd find on some S1 syllabuses. I've also included the joke codebreaker I made for my Year 11s for this topic. The joke should be "When is the best time to visit your dentist? Two thirty."

Binomial Distribution Revision Quiz. Worksheet.

Binomial Distribution Revision Quiz. Worksheet.

I have used this quiz at the end of my lessons on the Binomial Distribution. I gave a copy of the quiz to each student, I split them into teams and asked randomly the questions on the sheet. Each team would get different points based on the difficulty of the question. The students enjoyed the activity a lot. If you run out of time, tell them to complete all the questions as homework.
