This unit focuses on developing mastery in the basic and developing concepts of probability. The probability scale is explored; assigning values using fractions, decimals and percentages to the likelihood of an event. Students are encouraged to be systematic when listing outcomes of single or combined events and to use appropriate forms to display outcomes such as two-way tables. Procedural variation in questioning is used to good effect to underpin the learning. Probability experiments are explored practically with relative frequencies calculated and compared to theoretical probabilities. Theoretical probabilities are found from models and used to solve problems. The unit is rounded off by a consideration of mutually exclusive events and associated calculations including adding simple probabilities and finding the probability of successive events.

What people say...
The motivation and dedication of GCSE tutees has secured them some good grades that I personally feel they would not have attained without the PG approach.
George Crane. Tutor,
A fantastic set of resources to support both teachers and students in the delivery of the new computing curriculum. We would be lost without it.
