## Fractions, decimals and percentages

Discover our collection of GCSE maths number - fractions, decimals and percentages lessons, activities, powerpoints and notes. These resources are hand-picked by the Tes Maths Panel for their relevance to the 9-1 specifications - use them for planning, homework and revision.

This page contains the very best resources for teaching sections N10 to N13 from the GCSE maths specification (first examined in 2017), combining structured lessons and engaging activities. Fractions, decimals and percentages are a staple of GCSE maths, but we have seen an increase in challenge in the way they are assessed under the new specification. Hopefully this set of resources will offer up lots of ideas for delivering the content.

## Ordering decimals

#### Introduction to decimals

The student sheet is designed for them to fill in with place value and examples. There is then a shading sheet for tenths and one for hundredths. Finally there are some cards which contain 9 different 1 and 2 decimal place numbers where pupils have to sort into their groups - decimal number version, shaded version (using a 10x10 grid), number line version and a version where the decimal is spelled. This could develop into understanding that, say, 0.4 is larger than 0.18 - a common misconception.

There is a powerpoint attached that works through all this.

Happy to send powerpoint in earlier version or the worksheets in word to allow editing if you want.

Let me know how you get on with them.

I have a website, mrchadburn.co.uk which I'm hoping to upload this and other resources. Please keep visiting as it develops and comments, criticisms keenly accepted.

**MIX & MATCH ACROSS GRADE LEVELS TO DIFFERENTIATE/CUSTOMIZE**

You can choose a grade level that suits your class best, and/or mix and match across the same clue numbers (except for the Grade 1 Version) to differentiate and customize the math mystery for your students. The Grade 1 version is simplified as a whole and cannot be mixed with the rest. (For example, swap clue 1 from the Grade 2 version to clue 1 from the Grade 3 version to make that part more challenging for some students.)

ANSWERS MAY NEED TO BE CHECKED/EDITED as when I do these with my class I often have one or two questions when both of them are wrong to encourage pupils to check their answers, promote discussion and build confidence with the skill.
