In this unit, students will learn how to calculate probabilities. They start by looking at likelihood and the probability scale, then working out theoretical probabilities of single events, before looking at using experiments to estimate probabilities. They will look at finding probabilities of combinations of events by listing outcomes, by calculating probabilities of independent events and using tree diagrams to work out probabilities and will calculate conditional probabilities.

This pack is designed to provide teachers with complete lesson plans and classroom resources to teach excellent lessons. It is designed to both teach the mathematical content and draw students into deeper consideration of its implications, including the mathematical reasoning and problem solving skills required for the new Maths GCSE.

The pack contains:

**8 Lesson Plans: **Full ready-to-use lesson plans on the following topics:

**Likelihood & the Probability Scale****Calculating Probabilities****Experimental & Theoretical Probabilities****Relative Frequency & Expected Frequency****Sample Space Diagrams****Probabilities of Independent Events****Probability Trees (With Replacement)****Probability Trees (Without Replacement)**

**Lesson Resources: **A variety of additional resources to accompany the lesson plans, including student worksheets and aids for students needing extra support.

**2 Homework Activities: **Further activities to give students to complete at home.

**Assessment: **A series of questions to enable you to assess the progress of students.
