Shahriyar HajghassemHost: Shahriyar is a Maths Teacher at a School in Northwest London, teaching years 7 to 11. He graduated from the University of Warwick in 2013 and set off to China for two years teaching IGCSE and A-Level Economics.

In this class students will learn how to construct tree diagrams and calculate the probability of different events. A tree diagram is simply a way of representing a sequence of events. Each branch of a tree is labelled at the end with its outcome and the probability is written alongside the line. Tree diagrams are particularly useful in probability since they record all possible outcomes in a clear and uncomplicated manner. Tree diagrams can appear in both the Higher and foundation paper at GCSE level.
