Christmaths Elves


LO:  To use probability for future prediction.


Overview: Students choose a team of Elves subject to some constraints. They are then given the results to see who chose the best team.


Suggested approach: Use the introduction PowerPoint to engage the students with the task. Once all questions have been answered each student can then be given a copy of the Elf Statistics sheet to look at choosing their team. Once this is complete give out the profiles sheets. Once they have chosen their teams use the Results PowerPoint with the Results Sheets to see their final scores. Note that the introduction does have some music that should automatically play if the music file is copied into the same folder on your computer as the PowerPoint, if it does not play automatically the music file should work on its own.
