Laws of probability
This resource is from a collection of Nuffield Maths resources exploring Hypothesis testing. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in GCE A level. The resources typically include slide shows to introduce the topics, student sheets and teacher notes, as well as other relevant resources.
Students are asked to explore the addition law for probabilities of mutually exclusive events in this resource. The multiplication law for probabilities of independent events are also introduced. Students then use these laws to tackle some probability problems.
