Make your lessons on probability more effective

Probability is a vital part of the maths curriculum for 11 - 16 year olds worldwide - a good foundational knowledge of probability can be useful throughout life, helping students make informed decisions big and small. Despite this, probability is often poorly understood.

On this course you will work to change that, learning how to create and deliver more effective lessons on probability by using practical and frequency-based approaches. Taking a realistic, instead of abstract algebraic, approach this course will equip you with skills and ideas to take back to your classroom.

This course is for a range of teachers including: teachers of 11-16 mathematics curricula in England (including KS3 and GCSE), teachers of 11-16 Cambridge International mathematics curricula worldwide (including Checkpoint and IGCSE), teachers of other 11-16 mathematics curricula and qualifications which involve probability. It will also be useful for trainee teachers in teacher training colleges and on placement in schools, mathematics curriculum advisers and providers of mathematics CPD.
