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

Flip- chart moves through stages of multiplication as repeated addition and then an array. Can be made more practical (fun) by having a collection of small pairs of socks and lots of real life examples of an array. Also children love the chocolate challenge!<br />

This is a nice activity to introduce the idea of ratio, by using sequences. Suitable for KS2.<br />
<br />
I found it useful to use pieces of card (e.g. 1 yellow for every 2 blue) to visually demonstrate beforehand (using volunteers - each holding the correct ratio) and show how to record this into a table on the whiteboard as you go, before using this resource as the main activity. <br />
<br />
I also allowed children to use counters at their table to aid them whilst completing the worksheet, as this was very beneficial to some learners.
