There are 6 exercise sheets and an examination-style assessment test, each with answers included in this unit.
Our resources apply the principles of Mastery throughout, creating a rich and deep learning experience. Find out more about Mastery with our quick guide.
This unit builds on earlier areas further developing the mastery of this important area of mathematics through excellent use of context and reasoning skills. Density and pressure are explored and calculated. Ratios of the lengths, areas and volumes of similar shapes are explored and used to solve problems in context, with units being converted as appropriate. Velocity time graphs are drawn and their gradients and the area under the graph are interpreted in context. Direct and inverse proportion relationships are recognised and interpreted, and where appropriate represented algebraically. Compound interest is explored and students set up, solve and interpret real-life problems. The unit concludes by considering growth and decay problems in context; setting up and solving problems through repeated calculations (rather than using a formula) and interpreting the solutions.
