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.

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: Probability 5 - Tree Diagrams (+ worksheets)

Statistics: Probability 5 - Tree Diagrams (+ worksheets)

This is a whole lesson on tree diagrams, but there is probably (pun intended) enough material for two lessons (with and without replacement)... the lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, keywords, excellent examples of replacement and non-replacement and one example of conditional probability, questions with answers and plenary. Even though this lesson is aimed at higher tier pupils at GCSE, there is a couple of A-Level questions included with answers, so that I can use the same material for my A-Level S1 Statistics classes. If you are interested in the A-level resources then I do recommend buying this and also buying my series on sets, which also crosses over with this lesson on the probability content. 19 slides + resources.

Statistics: Binomial Distribution 1 - Investigation & Introduction

Statistics: Binomial Distribution 1 - Investigation & Introduction

This is a whole lesson (30 sides) doing an investigation, which is fun and to self-discover what the binomial distribution is and introduces the whole topic. It also looks at the notation involved and putting the formula into a general form. This is a fantastic foundation for the next lesson. I like teaching this lesson and every time I have taught it, the pupils love it and has been a really successful way of getting a deep level of understanding. This comes as one of three lessons on the binomial lesson and 4 if you include using the normal approximation.

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.

Non-Transitive Dice

Non-Transitive Dice

The PowerPoint slideshow is a full series of lessons exploring the amazing properties of a set of Non-Transitive Dice, with lots of experimental probability and working with combined events in the form of Tree Diagrams. The Excel Spreadsheet has all the possible combinations on it, and allows you to play around with the different combinations (as well as check answers). Students can use it to try and find other sets on non-transitive dice as well. Let me know what you think!

Bias dice game

Bias dice game

Pupils must construct 3 very bias dice. They then play a game with their dice, very simply, the one with the highest number wins. By recording who wins they work out the relative frequency for each colour and give conclusions on the best dice to pick. Moving on to theoretical probability, pupils must draw tree diagrams to show which dice will win. In the end, the three dice are cyclic, like rock paper scissors and it all depends on what colour your opponent chooses. Extension tasks on worksheet.
