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.

What people say...
I am really pleased with the resources for the Unit 8 'Crude Oil and Fuels' so far. As I am non-specialist teaching the new specification of AQA GCSE Chemistry for the first time this year, these resources have been invaluable to me. The presentations are thorough and well illustrated. The teacher guide and power point presentation leads you through the topics logically. This has been particularly useful as I have been tasked with picking up this course with students that are already midway through their GCSE and the commentary has provided me with useful guidance of what students should have covered in earlier modules and there are also activities that recap earlier learning. The fact that the resources are so thorough and there is a WS and HWK for every lesson, has saved me a huge amount of planning time as there is already plenty for students to do. All I have had to do is add a little further differentiated practice as and when my students needed it. I will definitely be looking at buying other modules too.

PG Online have been a lifesaver for good quality schemes of work. The resources are really well thought out, really well paced and the homeworks and assessments test the core understanding of each lesson. I have also found the textbooks to be a great course companion.
