NSM101 Lesson on Probability

I taught this lesson in Manila to a group of high school teachers using the New Syllabus Mathematics. The problem posed is to find the probability of drawing two cards with the same number, one from a stack of cards labelled 1 to 4 and another from another stack of cards, also labelled 1 to 4. Using the responses from eight groups, we were able to solve this problem that involved combined events using the knowledge of basic probability of single event. The responses included the use of listing, tree diagrams and table. I was quite satisfied we managed to use the responses to explain the multiplication rule.
