Developing an Exam Question: Probability S7

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students use past examination papers creatively, analyse the demands made by examination questions, understand and use estimates or measures of probability from theoretical models, list all outcomes for two successive events in a systematic way and identify mutually exclusive outcomes and know that the sum of the probabilities of all these outcomes is 1.Most students will have attempted to answer probability questions such as these before, but they may have misconceptions. This
session aims to expose studnets’ misconceptions and to enrich their understanding of the probability concepts and skills likely to be demanded in GCSE examination questions (GCSE Grades A - F)
