Statistics: (S2) Normal distribution 4 - Approximation for Binomial Distribution (+ worksheet)

Statistics: (S2) Normal distribution 4 - Approximation for Binomial Distribution (+ worksheet)

This is the fourth of a series of lessons on the normal distribution. It is applicable for S2 in the UK, but international A-Level has this as a part of the S1 specification. 26 slides. This lesson needs to proceed lessons on the binomial and normal distributions, both available as a lesson in my shop. Specifically, this lesson is for teaching when to use the normal distribution as an approximation for a binomial distribution. It looks at why we use and looks in a lot of detail at common mistakes pupil’s make in order for pupil’s to avoid doing it and I have had excellent results on this topic using this resource. I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson and includes plenty of examples, superb teaching slides with lots of custom animation, keywords, learning objectives, differentiated questions and basic plenary.

Statistics: Binomial Distribution 3: Expectation and Variance

Statistics: Binomial Distribution 3: Expectation and Variance

This is a lesson 3 of a great series on the binomial distribution, but a short PowerPoint (9 slides) as there is not a huge amount in this topic (reflected in the price)… it is still a great resource with starter, learning objectives, clear and concise teachings and examples and quick plenary. However, I do highly recommend getting the very thorough first two lessons in the series! The lesson is available as a bundle or complete teaching on this topic.

MEI stats 2 power point presentation

MEI stats 2 power point presentation

This presentation covers the Poisson distribution, The normal distribution, samples and hypothesis testing and Bivariate data. Including approximations and hints and tips. The resource is also extremely useful just before exams if printed out as flash cards to induce mathematical thinking before students enter an exam

Discrete Random Variables

Discrete Random Variables

A presentation that shows students how to show discrete random variables in different ways. It also shows how to find the mean and variance of discrete random variables and how to use linear scaling to solve general functions of x. SMART Notebook Express presentations can be used for free by using SMART online or by downloading SMART software, also free, I use it because it allows a more interactive presentation than a powerpoint. Just search 'SMART Notebook Express' and try it with my free SMART resource

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. NOTE: please browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources.

Statistics: (S1) Making the Mean and Variance Easier (CODING)

Statistics: (S1) Making the Mean and Variance Easier (CODING)

This is a teaching resource to help pupils understand coding and the basics of linear adjustments/combinations and how to calculate back and forward from the original data to the coded data. It comes with a good starter, a look at re-arranging and then why coding is used and how it is used. Links to past exam questions, however, it does not come with lots of questions as at that point of practice, I use our S1 textbook. Also a rule sheet handout!
