#### Fluency in Number Work - No Calculator

The reformed GCSE Mathematics (9-1) curriculum demands from students a higher degree of fluency in number work. This worksheet is aimed at showing students a variety of skills to evaluate numerical expressions more effectively and to solve multi-step number work problems more fluently. This worksheet has a total of 100 questions (80 numerical expressions and 20 number problems), involving the four operations, fractions, decimal numbers, percentages, indices, surds, standard form, multiplication factors, proportion, ratio, percentage change, simple interest and compound interest.Most of these questions can be solved in different ways and students should try to pick methods which will reduce the risk of making mistakes. Perhaps the answers accompanying this worksheet do not always show the quickest method, but they have been written with the emphasis on accuracy, trying to show students how to get the answers without making calculation errors.This worksheet is excellent revision for all students sitting the non-calculator paper of the new GCSE Mathematics examination.
