Cross curricular Competencies


How will this unit promote the CCC?

Creativity and Innovation


- In this unit our content will cover the probability of physical events such as role of dice, picking a card, and spinning of a spinner. The students
will need to take this idea of a concrete event and turn it into a mathematical concept. In previous grades they have began working with different
pictorial models for probability and our job with this unit is to extent that knowledge by adding an addition independent event to tree diagram and
table methods of displaying the information.
Collaboration
- During this unit we will be using pictorial, concrete and symbolic to represent the probability of a given outcome. Based on the size of our class
each individual person may not be able to do each activity on their own so we are going to need to work together in order to make sure everyone
is given an equal opportunity to learn. Just because students are working together does not mean they are collaborating. The activities will be
built so that they must talk about and discuss how they are getting the answer they are and how each way to solve a problem works for them. If
they can learn from each other and teach each other that is one way to show a mastery level understanding.

Assessment Tool Overview


Assessment Assessment Assessment
Assessment Tool Brief Description FOR Learning AS Learning OF Learning

Throughout the lessons students will be given questions on separate sheets as well as
given them in their notes to complete. These questions will be of varying degrees of
difficult and varying degrees of supports. They will complete them individually, in small
Daily Questions groups and sometimes as a class. As they complete these questions they will have to check x
with myself or in some cases a peer to make sure the questions are correct as this is
happening I will be able to formatively assess the students knowledge of the students as
we are working through the material

In this unit we will have an opportunity to use technology to formatively assess the
students knowledge. Kahoot will be used for the students to test their knowledge of an
probability in a autonomous environment. They will answer a series of questions related to
the vocabulary and mental math strategies that the students will need to be successful in
Pear Deck/ Kahoot this unit. In order to do the kahoot we need to make sure everyone has a chromebook and x x
once we have taken the time to get everyone logged on it would be an ideal situation to
have them use the interactive pear deck throughout the lesson to continuously formative
assessment. The pear deck can be referred to in order accurately formatively assess the
knowledge of the class.

During this unit we will have an opportunity to find the probability of different events such
as the rolling of a die, spinning of a spinner, flipping of a coin and picking a card from a
deck. By having large class sizes it is not possible to everyone to have individual
manipulatives so they will be forced to work together in order to gain the experience. As
Group Activity x x
we work out way through this unit students will work together to use these tools and
answer questions. With group work it becomes difficult to assess who is doing the work
and who is just along for the ride so these questions will be used to gauge where the class
is as a whole in regards to the content we are covering
This exam will cover the learning objective that we talk about in this unit. It will be the final
summative assessment for the unit, showing what each individual has learned and can
Test demonstrate through a series of multiple choice, true/false and short answer question. x
These questions will be weighted in the same format as the unit in regards to the levels of
blooms taxonomy.

Learning Plan

Where have them come to Where do they go?

In grade seven students begin looking at probability of multiple events and being able to represent those in ratios, fractions and percents. This is also the
first time they are looking at multiple events so they are exposed to the tree diagram for the first time. In this unit we will use this knowledge to advance
into three independent. The students will learn how to link independent events to find the probability that the three outcomes will happen in a given
situation and known of the three outcomes will affect the other. In grade eight probability we go through the final steps of independent probability so that
they can explore the role of probability in society in grade nine. During this unit students will build on their understanding of probability in order to being the
process of applying it to the real world. In order to begin looking at real world applications we will use the dice and cards that are widely used through
homes and casino’s across the world
