There are 7 exercise sheets and an examination-style assessment test, each with answers included in this unit.
Our resources apply the principles of Mastery throughout, creating a rich and deep learning experience. Find out more about Mastery with our quick guide.
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...
Early career teachers will find these an invaluable resource to support developing their practice, knowing the material is approached with a consistent pedagogy that has stood the test of time, from a team of experienced teachers. Over time they can customise the lessons to better address the needs of their different classes and growing sense of themselves as teachers of mathematics.

I am really pleased with the resources for the Unit 8 'Crude Oil and Fuels' so far. As I am non-specialist teaching the new specification of AQA GCSE Chemistry for the first time this year, these resources have been invaluable to me. The presentations are thorough and well illustrated. The teacher guide and power point presentation leads you through the topics logically. This has been particularly useful as I have been tasked with picking up this course with students that are already midway through their GCSE and the commentary has provided me with useful guidance of what students should have covered in earlier modules and there are also activities that recap earlier learning. The fact that the resources are so thorough and there is a WS and HWK for every lesson, has saved me a huge amount of planning time as there is already plenty for students to do. All I have had to do is add a little further differentiated practice as and when my students needed it. I will definitely be looking at buying other modules too.
