Teaching and Learning Plan – Permutations, Combinations & Probability Lesson Title: Code-Breaker Prior Knowledge: Students should have covered the fundamental principle of counting before attempting this activity. Students do not require any prior knowledge of probability before beginning this topic. The content has been designed as a general introduction to probability. Students should have a general knowledge of Arithmetic before the lesson begins. The teacher will also have to prepare for this class in advance by teaching general information about a pack of cards, e.g. How many suits, names of suits, how many black cards, red cards, Kings, Queens etc. Learning Outcomes: All pupils will be able to: Arrange the letters and numbers in the code exercise to come up with a number of possible permuations. Count the number of cards in a certain suit/character to come up with the maximum number of those cards that could be selected from a deck. Some pupils will be able to: Arrange the letters and numbers in the code exercise to come up with a ALL possible permuations. Derive an expression to represent the probability of choosing a certain suit/character card when one card only is chosen from a deck. A few pupils will be able to: Come up with the formula for discovering the number of permutations possible from a given set of data. Derive an expression to represent the probability of choosing a more specific type of card (e.g. red Queen), when one card only is chosen from a deck. Page 1 of 30

New Vocabulary: Suit Spades Diamonds Hearts Clubs Probability Chance Permutations Arrangements Limitations Selections Resources: o Sets of Colour-coded letter and number cards for the code-breaking activity. o (approximately 14 sets per group of 3 students) o Code-breaker activity sheet. o Sets of 4 number cards for the ATM pin activity. o (approximately 25 sets per group of 3 students) o ATM pin activity sheet. o Flashcards for terminology and symbols. o Deck of cards (one per 3 students). o Giant deck of cards o Deck of cards activity sheet. Possible misconceptions/difficulties for students: Students may have the misconception that codes cannot begin with the number zero. They may have difficulty in bringing a logical method to the code exercise. Page 2 of 30

Key teaching strategies for this topic: The key strategies required to teach this topic are active, hands-on learning (students dealing out cards, constructing codes, physically doing exercises during the lesson), appealing to the students’ multiple intelligences (visual, kinaesthetic, logical), constructivism (building on any prior general knowledge the students have of pin- codes, atm codes, chance, probability etc.). Real life context: This activity is very relevant to everyday life: Students selecting an atm code, mobile phone pin code, security alarm code etc., and realising the number of permutations available to them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
