#### KS4 Probability-Rescue the princess-adventure game

Featured in the TES Newsletter. Adventure game in which students answer probability questions in order to rescue a princess. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. There are 5 sections, each with 2 topics. They have 4 attempts at each topic, if they get all 4 wrong, the game ends and they will have to start again. The 5 sections are: OR and AND questions, complementary events, combined events (inc. 'exactly' questions and 'at least' questions), conditional probability. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.

#### Cash for questions revision activity

There are 4 sets of questions (Number, Algebra, Shape, Data) which are mainly A and A* (with some lower grade questions from topics which students struggle with, e.g. percentages, constructions). PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Students work in pairs or small groups to answer the questions. When they finish a question they get it marked and if it is correct they are given cash to the value of the question. There are bank notes which you can put your school name and pictures of your teachers on. The team with the most money at the end could be given a prize.

#### KS2 Probability: Discussing the probability of events and investigating probability

These are differentiated resources for two lessons about probability, which I used for my mixed ability Year 5 group, but could be used or adapted for any KS2 Maths group. Lesson 1) The language of probability: sorting events by their probability and creating a scale between certain and impossible. Lesson 2) Investigating probability. LA = Orange, Purple/ Yellow = MA and Blue/ Green = HA

#### Probability-KS3 & KS4

This product contains 24 sets of probability task cards. Each card contains a multiple choice question with 4 options and student have to choose the correct option and record the answer in the Answering Sheet, which is included in this product. Answers to the task cards are also provided for reference. Hope this product would be a great tool for classroom teaching as well as for children under home school.Kindly share your thoughts!Thanks!

#### CHANCE AND PROBABILITY: NO PREP PRINT-N-GO SHEETS

Use this comprehensive pack of differentiated Print-n-Go Sheets to teach and reinforce conceptual knowledge of Chance and Probability. The hands-on interactive activities will also facilitate practical application and enable students to work with the concrete in order to understand the abstract. Moreover the activities are sure to make the teaching of Theoretical and Experimental probability not just easy but pure fun! ITEMS INCLUDED Cover pages for each section, if compiling sheets into a booklet. 1. The Probability Scale; Words Describing Chance: ♦ Definitions and given scenarios♦ Chance and Data (language of chance); class survey: favourite food; favourite sport2. Theoretical Probability: Manipulatives, spinner numbers, spinner names, spinner colours, marbles, dice numbers, playing cards3.Theoretical Probability: possible outcomes using Tree Diagrams and Grids ♦ two coins ♦ a coin and a dice ♦ a dice and a spinner 4. Theoretical and Experimental Probability: ♦ Rolling a six-sided dice a given number of times.♦ Tossing two coins a given number of times.♦ Spinning a spinner a given number of times.♦ Picking an M&amp;M colour a given number of times.5. Experimental Probability: ♦ Dice roll to find the number of trials and relative frequency of the numbers rolled.♦ Group experiment to toss a coin a given number of times and record the total heads, total tails, total outcomes, and relative frequencies of heads and tails (fractions and decimals) for each group. This is to prove the law of large numbers that indicate that as the number of trials increase, the relative frequencies tend to get closer to the expected value (0.5) of tossing a coin.6. Word Problems for both theoretical and experimental probability outcomes: This section features ‘Work with Teacher’ and ‘Student Practice’ pages. The ‘Work with Teacher’ page will enable you to demonstrate the solution for each problem. I work on the PDF version of the file on the I-pad. This is projected on the interactive whiteboard (via a VGA cable) as I show annotations and working out of the problems. The ‘Student Practice’ pages will enable your students to practise the problem-solving strategies modelled by you in the ‘Work with Teacher’ pages. Problems are the same format with only a change in the numbers. Nature of Problems: ♦ Picking a favourable outcome from given possible outcomes.♦ Problems pertaining to coin tosses and dice rolls♦ Real-life problem: left-handed, right-handed people ♦ Problems involving possible combinations shown via a tree diagram ♦ Problems with Spinner spins→ Also included 18 colourful and meaningful vocabulary cards.

#### Maths: Probability Game

#### Collecting and interpreting data on favourite biscuit - Year 3

This is a worksheet where the chn have to discuss what the tally chart is about. LO and SC are included on the worksheet. Then the chn have to write the headings above the columns on the chart. Next the chn have to collect the data themselves, asking their peers which biscuit is their favourite and record it in tallies on the chart. Chn have to complete the chart and then discuss what they have found. Finally I asked the chn to draw a bar graph and then analyse the data in their books.

#### Union and Intersection of Sets

Students learn how to calculate the union and intersection of sets using Venn diagrams. As learning progresses students are challenged to use the union and intersection to calculate a probability.At the start of the lesson recaps both collecting like terms and using Venn diagrams to calculate a probability. The plenary challenges students to apply set notation to three independent events within a Venn diagram.Differentiated Learning ObjectivesAll students should be able to identify a union and intersect using set notation.Most students should be able to calculate a probability from a Venn diagram using set notation.Some students should be able to use set notation with probability trees and Venn diagrams.Check out my blog at mr-mathematics.com for:* Fully planned and differentiated maths lessons for KS3 and GCSE grades 1 - 9.* Schemes of work based on pedagogy and teacher support.
