I am a teacher of Economics and Business in a south London school and the resources on here are all ones I've found work well and are effective when teaching my students in these subjects. You will also find some other resources for general target-setting or supporting pupils in form time as well as some resources from when I taught Maths a few years ago.

The aim is to encourage students to practice calculating percentage change, but it will also help with basic arithmetic & finances. It should last an hour, including time for a quick starter, explanation, é a plenary discussion. Students are commodity traders looking to make as much profit as possible. There are six rounds and a 'newsflash&' each round, students should decide what to invest their $2000 in. The prices change by different percentages each round, so students will need to calculate these in order to find out how much revenue é therefore profit they have made.

I really like the look of this and want to try it with my Year 8 group. I have a question though - the prices change each round, but do they reset to the original world prices at the start of each new round or do the percentages have a compound effect? Thanks

Used with my year 7 top set maths group. Worked very well to look at percentage change. The only thing I'd change is that there's a bit on the first page that states the formula for percentage change, which isn't really what the sheet asks for.
