Here is a starter I have used when teaching fractions/fractions of amounts. It involves working out the fraction of the cost of a PS3 various family members will pay towards a present. Could also be used as a plenary.
This worksheet is intended to be a starter activity for a lesson on finding fractions of amounts. If you print the document, '2 pages to a sheet&' and &';print on both sides' (flip on short edge) it becomes a mini booklet. Please leave a comment if you use it and like it :-)
A PowerPoint Activity on sharing in ratios, in particular finding an unknown amount, e.g how much water do you need if water and squash are mixed in the ratio 3:10 and 20ml of squash is used. There is a starter on sharing in ratios and then some examples followed by some questions. Hope you find it useful.
Spelling mistake is in the on purpose to help see which students are paying attention (blush)- not really, sorted it now
A scheme of work i made based on OCRs specification, designed for our students who won't be entered for GCSE maths. The course is designed to be completed in about a year, but i'm thinking I&'ll need to be flexible with the timings and use the same scheme for year 10 and 11. Hope you find it useful
