Just Like Us, the LGBT+ young people’s charity, has released free GCSE maths resources, including a free LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) lesson plan.

The free, ready-to-go lesson plan teaches pupils about dependent events, using examples from the TV show Queer Eye.

It begins with a fun race activity, during which pupils will revise independent events, combined events and sample spaces.

The aim of the session is for pupils to revise independent events, combined events, and how to use sample spaces, and to identify independent and dependent events. It also seeks to ensure pupils can solve combined event problems using a probability tree.

What is School Diversity Week?

Every June, Just Like Us runs School Diversity Week. The event is a celebration of LGBT+ equality in primary and secondary schools across the UK.

As part of this, Just Like Us has created more than 50 free, LGBT+ inclusive resources for use in schools. These include lesson plans, worksheets, assembly ideas, story time discussions and presentations. Plus, there is a Rainbow Friday non-uniform day, fundraising for Just Like Us.

Each year, thousands of UK primary and secondary schools take part in School Diversity Week. Signing up means you will get free access to LGBT+ inclusive resources on all key stages and key subjects.

Why celebrate School Diversity Week?

Independent research has found a link between positive messaging about being LGBT+ in schools to pupils have better mental health. This is regardless of whether the pupils are LGBT+ or not.
