Statistics 1 - Normal Distribution - KS4 and S1

Statistics 1 - Normal Distribution - KS4 and S1

The following sheet is an activity that explores the normal distribution function. Ideal for KS4 and Post16 students. Norm Dist 1 - explores how the mean and standard deviation effect the normal distribution function Norm Dist 2 - explores the probability distribution for a symmetrical two tailed event Norm Dist 3 - explores the probability of a general two tailed event You will need to allow macros to run when using most of the sheets available here. This can be checked by opening Excel and clicking :- Tools Macros Security and choosing Medium or Low security.

Understanding Independent Events

Understanding Independent Events

An activity to test students' understanding of independence. Could be a useful starter for an S1 lesson on probability. Set in the context of a school with Venn diagrams. Part of a collection of A Level Statistics activities at www.making-statistics-vital.co.uk

Statistics 1- Probability simulations.Coin, dice.

A selection of probability simulations for AS Statistics modules. Consists of 3 coin, 1 die, 2 dice and venn diagram simulations. Microsoft Excel is spreadsheet software, designed to manipulate and view numerical data such as statistics. You will need to allow macros to run when using most of the sheets available here. This can be checked by opening Excel and clicking Tools Macros Security and choosing Medium or Low security. Also, some sheets require you have Analysis ToolPak installed - this is found by clicking Tools Add ins (you may need the original MS Office disks to do this).

GSCE Maths: Using probability computer games

GSCE Maths: Using probability computer games

Activities to enable learners of secondary mathematics to overcome common misconceptions about probability, use diagrams to count equally likely outcomes and calculate probabilities of dependent and independent events. This is part of the 'Mostly statistics' set of materials from Standards unit: Improving learning in mathematics.

Tuning and Ratio - Investigation for Post 16

Tuning and Ratio - Investigation for Post 16

In this activity students investigate logarithms and Pythagoras Theorem. It is an interactive activity ideal for A Level students. Why is the modern piano tuned using an equal tempered scale and what has this got to do with logarithms?

Maths Problem - Voting Paradox

Maths Problem - Voting Paradox

Some relationships are transitive, such as `if A>B and B>C then it follows that A>C', but some are not. In a voting system, if A beats B and B beats C should we expect A to beat C?

Succession in Randomia - Probability Investigation

Succession in Randomia - Probability Investigation

Another number problem from N-rich. This activity involves working out the probability of getting two outcomes when tossing a coin to see which event, if any, is more likely. This would make an ideal investigation lesson into probability for KS4. Pupils drawing probability trees would be a good extension. Teacher notes and a full set of solutions are provided to help with planning. By tossing a coin one of three princes is chosen to be the next King of Randomia. Does each prince have an equal chance of taking the throne?
