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.

Multiplicative Counting (GCSE 9-1)

Multiplicative Counting (GCSE 9-1)

I pushed my Year 11 set one a little bit to try some of the harder GCSE 9-1 questions on this topic where they needed to decide whether they were permutations or combinations & needed to be divided by 2 (very basic with only 2 variables). They at no time use combinations - we just extended the counting principle for different 'choices'. They struggled to know when to divide when reading the question so I made some new ones up for additional practice. These are a mixture of general counting principle, combinations & permutations. Answers included. Please let me know if any of them need fixing/changing for clarity.

KS3 and GCSE Probability Starters

KS3 and GCSE Probability Starters

A selection of 8 starters on probability related to real life which are suitable for KS3 and GCSE students. The starters encourage students to think laterally, being similar to brainteasers. Topics covered include: experimental probability, listing outcomes, sample space diagrams, relative frequency, tree diagrams, probability scales and permutations/combinations. Each starter begins with a problem or statement which the children must decide is true or false through investigation, giving reasons why this is the case. This exercise would be perfect for encouraging discussions as students may present a wide variety of explanations.
