Maths & Cross-Curricular Resources

My time zone and your time zone may be the same time zone. Maybe midnight for you and midnight for me are the same. Your month and my month could be the same month. But they could be different. Not every day. Not all the time. Not everywhere. But some times in some places on some days. Perhaps even on the day this was written.

Probability associated with compatible and combined event(s)

Probability associated with compatible and combined event(s)

The brief: "Probability: using diagrams for combined event including Venn diagrams and two way tables". Accordingly, this was possibly created in reaction to a "typo" in a challenge that was set; possibly created in reaction to an ongoing clash between the jargon of mathematics and Crystal-mark plain English; possibly not. This resource looks (constructively and positively!) at how one could find an event (singular) which features combined probabilities (think combined=compatible and hence of withdrawing, say, Queen of Diamonds from a pack of cards). This resource then moves into more traditional territory: combined independent events (plural!): each event with its own set of distinct mutually-exclusive outcomes. The resource encourages pupils to think about how to arrange data from these events and it can be used to lead them towards either (somewhat complex / technically flawed?) Venn diagrams or (more traditional and clear!) two-way tables [albeit a "sample space" would be preferable to both] as a means to clarify and present the raw data for speedy analysis. The language and symbols of set theory are used in places and may need decoding for pupils. The absence of a true sample space may render these slides "unsatisfying" for mathematicians likely to progress to the highest grades and on to A-Level; however, the faith was kept with the brief; next time... ;-)

Pub Garden Venn

Pub Garden Venn

A mini task. Defining and redefining 'the counted thing': one. Leads to creation of Venn diagram. Requires or tests recognition of circle, square and rectangle. Once they've understood the ideas, pupils can be encouraged to apply them when they are next in the garden of an English pub

Gradient - card sort

Gradient - card sort

Print the .pdf using the multiple pages per sheet option; or create GIANT WHOLE CLASS card sort by printing each page on A4. Several ways to sort these effectively. Be inventive!

KS3 Unit Progression Maps for each of: Number, Algebra, RP&RoC, Geometry, Statistics & Probability.

KS3 Unit Progression Maps for each of: Number, Algebra, RP&RoC, Geometry, Statistics & Probability.

Units follow English DfE National Curriculum. The value added here is the additional detail supporting each unit objective: progression through "Consolidation", "Development", "Securing" and then "Mastering" elements for each objective [n.b. where objectives did not immediately lend themselves to stepped progression for some stages, elements were shared between them on as reasonable a basis as possible]. Why do/use/buy this? Because different pupils (and classes!) have different starting places and ending places and often they and their parents like to know what each objective entails so they can apply "flipped learning" or similar.
