Mathematics Mastery

Summary

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.

What people say...

Students need to think and learn to reason so probing questions are a feature of every task in every lesson.

Heather Davis. Professional Development Lead, NCETM

The units we have ordered are proving really useful and helpful with development of materials for new specs.  The Maths for D&T have been particularly helpful.
