Maths

Lesson 1

LI: To solve World Book Day themed problems.

 

Work through the booklet solving the clues to discover the mystery. 

Maths Lesson 2

LI: To solve decimal, fraction and percentage reasoning problems.

 

Look through the powerpoint offering examples of reasoning and problem solving questions linked to our topic this week. 

 

Each problem offers a guided method of solving similar problems to those on your worksheet.

  • Think back to what we have learnt about equivalents and how to convert from one form to another.
  • This can be through multiplying a decimal by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
  • Making a fraction's denominator into 100 to show it as parts of 100 or % - remember this method is not always effective when the denominator is not a factor of 100. 
  • And more!

Lesson 3 

LI: To find percentages of an amount

 

In this lesson you will be using your knowledge of percentages to calculate a percentage (part) of a number.

Mr Cargill's helpful hint: Your answer should always be smaller than the amount you start with!

 

Watch the video below to help you understand how to find a percentage of an amount:
