Our resources apply the principles of Mastery throughout, creating a rich and deep learning experience. Find out more about Mastery with our quick guide.
Proportion now represents a more significant aspect of the reformed GCSE specification and this unit is an excellent resource to support and deepen the learning in this important area of mathematics. With much of the learning contextualised, this unit develops students’ understanding of proportion in the context of currency conversions, best buy problems and conversion between a range of units, including metric and imperial units. It uses graphical representations of proportion to develop understanding and encourage mastery and uses ratio to convert between measures. The unit closes by considering a range of contextualised reasoning problems to deepen understanding.

What people say...
The resources were very good.

PG Online resources are very well planned and easy to use. Inspection copies are also useful as this enables me to make better choices with our limited budgets.
