Putting it into practice
We would like you to try out the ideas that we have introduced so far with some of your own classes or students. We have covered a lot of ground, so you won’t have time to do everything!
The material that we have covered this week focuses on introducing probability as a new topic.
- If you have a initial probability lesson with a suitable class already scheduled and planned, you might like to review your plans, and decide what changes you could make as a result of what we have covered.
- If you do not have a suitable lesson scheduled, we strongly recommend that you adjust your schedule to include a probability lesson, if at all possible. In the next step, we will describe a new activity that you could use as the basis for your planning.
Before we move on to planning the classroom activity, we would like you to think about this question:
- What are the key ideas from Week 1 of the course that you are most keen to try in your classroom?
