There are 7 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 focuses on the properties and applications of fractions, decimals and percentages. Decimal and fractions are considered first with an emphasis on developing a mastery of these dual concepts. From here, percentages are introduced; expressing an amount as a percentage, converting between fractions, decimals and percentages and comparing two quantities using percentages. In context, percentages are interpreted as operators, percentages of amounts are found and reasoning tasks involving percentages are posed. Fluency with percentages grows as the unit moves on to consider percentage increase and decrease; using a decimal multiplier to represent the percentage change and to work in reverse. Problems in context involving percentage change are posed and solved.
