Exit Ticket - Pearson's Product Moment

Exit Ticket - Pearson's Product Moment

I give this to the students (printed in A4 or A5 depending on how much room they need) at the end of the lesson to assess an overview of the lesson. I mark it as soon as I can (ha) and it allows me to spot any misconceptions. The last question is a challenge one to push the most able students.

Interpreting Regression Graphs

Interpreting Regression Graphs

Seven examples of regression graphs are given with lines of best fit added. Examples of positive, negative and linear approximation relationships are used. Students are asked to state the correlation then estimate and interpret the intercept and gradient of each graph. The students need to know how to estimate the gradient from 2-points on the line and find the intercept by extrapolation. The task is presented in two forms (1) a write on worksheet and (2) a cut up , mix and match activity. The second option is designed to encourage group work and discussion. There is a set of extension questions, one for each graph that promote further consideration on the strengths and limitations of lines of best fit. Answers are provided in a separate file. The activity is designed to be used with AS Mathematics students however it is accessible to Higher Tier GCSE Mathematics and GCSE Statistics students.

GCSE Maths 'Using the Product Rule for Counting' Differentiated Presentation

GCSE Maths 'Using the Product Rule for Counting' Differentiated Presentation

GCSE Higher Tier says 'apply systematic listing strategies, including use of the product rule for counting (i.e. if there are m ways of doing one task and for each of these, there are n ways of doing another task, then the total number of ways the two tasks can be done is m × n ways)'. A clear, colourful and carefully explained PowerPoint presentation building up the skills from simple matching problems to calculating combinations and permutations in a variety of realistic and original settings, with lots of opportunity for the learner to reflect, apply, and evaluate the problems. Also available in my shop are two differentiated worksheets of adapted exam questions from sample and real GCSE assessments.

Maths GCSE 9-1 Counting Problems Foundation and Higher Tiers

Maths GCSE 9-1 Counting Problems Foundation and Higher Tiers

Two sets of questions, differentiated by paper, for learners to complete. Plus answers. Counting has always been on Foundation, so quite easy for learners. Sophisticated counting strategies are new to the GCSE higher tier. The specs say: apply systematic listing strategies, including use of the product rule for counting (i.e. if there are m ways of doing one task and for each of these, there are n ways of doing another task, then the total number of ways the two tasks can be done is m × n ways) Hence also suitable for revision at A Level Statistics. All questions follow the format of 2017 exams across the boards, and the SAMs and Mocks available.
