GCSE Maths Starter 20 Change 3 8 into a decimal
Q = 2c + d, when c = 3, d = 2. Work out the value of Q Draw an ordered stem and leaf diagram, for the data below Using the information that 4.8×34= Write down the value of 48×34 4.8×3.4 Work out the difference in temperature between 6pm and 10pm

To list all possible outcomes (Grade D ) To calculate missing probabilities from mutually exclusive events (Grade D)

Calculating probability
If the outcomes of an event are equally likely then we can calculate the probability using the formula: Probability of an event = Number of successful outcomes Total number of possible outcomes For example, a bag contains 1 yellow, 3 green, 4 blue and 2 red marbles. Point out that calculated probabilities are usually given as fractions but that they can also be given as decimals and (less often) as percentages. Ask pupils to give you the probabilities (as decimals, fractions and percentages) of getting a blue marble a red marble a yellow marble a purple marble a blue or a green marble, etc. What is the probability of pulling a green marble from the bag without looking? 3 10 P(green) = or 0.3 or 30%

Calculating probability
A fair dice is thrown. What is the probability of getting a 2? a multiple of 3? an odd number? a prime number? a number bigger than 6? an integer? 1 6 a) P(2) = 2 6 = 1 3 b) P(a multiple of 3) = 3 6 = 1 2 c) P(an odd number) =

Work out the probability of: (a) (b) 4 21 (i) 1 2 P(Red) = (i) P(Odd) = (ii) 2 7 P(Green) = (ii) 1 4 P(Multiple of 3) = 1 7 (iii) (iii) 1 7 P(Yellow) = P(>5) = (iv) 5 7 (iv) P(<1) = P(Not blue) = 3 7 1 2 (v) (v) P(Blue or yellow) = P(Prime) = 1 4 (vi) (vi) P(Purple) = P(Square) = 5

Sample space diagrams 9 6 5 4 8 3 2 1 + Second die First die
This table is another way of displaying all the outcomes from throwing two dice and adding them together. It is called a sample space diagram. 9 6 5 4 8 3 2 1 + Second die First die Fill in the rest of the cells in the table. Colour in all the twos one colour, the threes another colour etc. The completed table appears on the next slide. What patterns do you notice in the table?
