Teaching probability tree diagrams for the first time? Or just need to go at a slower pace (With visual prompts) then this is the perfect resource for your lesson. The resources could last between 2-3 lessons depending on the group.
There are 28 slides including a history of tree diagrams, example GCSE questions where students are required to understand that probability adds up to 1.
There are support examples which lead students step by step through the idea of how to form the fractions to fill in the tree diagram.
There are lots of examples and questions where you can cross out the red/yellow counters to help students understand the idea of without replacement as you progress through the lesson(s).
Struggling to find extra GCSE exam style questions? Here are 6 questions on a word document with room for students to show their working out. In addition these are on a PowerPoint with an additional 3 example questions for you to demonstrate to the class.
This includes questions such as:
Write 27 as a power of 3
Write 1/16 as a power of 2 (Fractions are formatted correctly)
Express 1/8root2 as a power of 2
Solve 5 x 4^2u-5 = 40 (Solving equations through a manipulation of indices)
These questions are becoming more common in GCSE Maths exams and those of us who have been teaching indices for many years at GCSE need to adapt to these questions. Some of these were only found on A-level previously.
This worksheet consists of sharing a quantity into a three part ratio, combinations of ratio, then fractions and percentages with ratio. It ends with three extension questions aimed at grade 7+ students.
I used this in an observation lesson where I wanted a set 1/2 class to demonstrate a good knowledge of ratio which they’d been learning, but I wanted a good challenge for the most able students to finish with.
This worksheet comes with answers written out in a clear way.
When starting SOHCAHTOA you find yourself repeating the same things. Which sides are the hypotenuse, opposite and adjacent? Which ratio do we choose?
With the helpful hints for both finding sides and angles worksheets, this is the perfect introductory sheet for SOHCAHTOA. There are even full examples of the substitution and rearrangement needed.
All these questions are spaced out so that this can be printed out and students have room to show their working out. Each question also challenges students to round to significant figures and understand the idea of the length being side AB or EF.
43 challenging ratio questions which will give your top GCSE students a great opportunity to revise all aspects of ratio. Easy to print out in a condensed, but easy to read format. All answers are provided with full detailed working out shown.
