After we had been given back our assessments from last term and given instructions for how to review them we started looking at probability. The review process can be found here.

The first task was to carry out and True/False quiz on our phones (and some of Mr Rouse’s devices) using socrative, which is a student response website and app. The students have used this before…but obviously didn’t remember!

By creating a quiz and starting it from my account students can access it via their mobile devices using the room number unique to me. If anyone would like to use the Probability Misconceptions Quiz in their class you can add this SOC code in your socrative account SOC-693862. Mr Rouse

The live scores were displayed on the board as the students made their way through the quiz which involved the following questions:

A: FALSE

B: TRUE

C: FALSE

D: FALSE

E: FALSE

F: FALSE

G: FALSE

H: TRUE

I: FALSE

J: FALSE

The results can be viewed here with student names removed.

It shows that the next few lessons will need to focus on

- understanding of whether the outcomes are equally likely or not.
- being able to list outcomes systematically and accurately

The students are now starting to use www.rouseyear9.blogspot.co.uk to access information from our lessons.
