Ratio and proportion activities

These resources were created these for Year 5, working alongside Year 6 in a mixed-age class. The resources include: - finding the relative size of proportions (factors and multiples as key skills) - survey activity, focusing on simplifying proportions - ratio homework activity (factors, multiples, multiplication, division) The resources were designed to focus pupils' reasoning skills, and to give them opportunities to explain their understanding.

WHOLE LESSON FOUNDATION PROPORTION BEST BUYS

WHOLE LESSON FOUNDATION PROPORTION BEST BUYS

Powerpoint takes students through how we look at three deals and scale up or down to ensure that we have bought the same amount in each place, allowing a comparison to be made. The resource follows the powerpoint and allows student to be fully supported from one star to three star. The sheets can be printed and written on, stuck in students' books to allow a reference to their learning

WHOLE LESSON FOUNDATION PROPORTION RECIPES

WHOLE LESSON FOUNDATION PROPORTION RECIPES

A full lesson on the classic examination question based on unitary proportion. The powerpoint takes students through how we can very simply change a recipe for 4 biscuits into a recipe for 8 biscuits and then evolves to see how we could perhaps change recipes for 6 into recipes for 8 by scaling down and then up. There are two resources to accompany the lesson, both of which are fully differentiated and,when printed in A4 booklet form, allow the students to write on, including their working. Answers not supplied and the recipes are not real! I usually finish this lesson with the Maths 4 Real video with Ben Shepherd (although I cannot include this video as I do not own it)

Percents with Proportions Math Stations

Percents with Proportions Math Stations

These percents with proportions math stations are perfect to develop a deep understanding of setting up and solving percent problems with proportions. Students will set up, solve, and create percent problems with proportions. Students love these engaging stations. Teachers love them for the deep content. The following math stations are included: • Percent Word Problems: Given percent word problems, students will solve the problem by setting up and solving proportions. • Percent Practice: Students will practice solving percent proportions. • Creating Percent Word Problems: Given a proportion, students will create percent word problems that can be solved using the given proportion. • Matching Puzzle: A coloring and matching activity where students match a percent problem, a proportion, and the solution. • Letter Writing: Students write a letter to their friend who missed class about everything they learned about setting up percent proportions. These would also be great to use as homework, group work or assessments. Recording sheets and answer keys included.
