GCSE  Higher exam-style questions:  Fractions, ratios and percentages

GCSE Higher exam-style questions: Fractions, ratios and percentages

This worksheet is aimed at students capable of attaining at least levels 4 to 7 of the new maths specification. This is a high-quality resource but priced low to encourage sales. Exercise 1 is a basic lead-in exercise in converting decimals to percentages, and vice versa, without using a calculator. Exercise 2, 3 and 4 are longer more challenging questions. Exercise 2 is based on application of a government levy to gas and electricity sales made by an energy company. Exercise 3 is based on the salt water content of a lake and comparing it to sea water, finding various ratios, masses, etc. Exercise 4, which is the longest exercise, is based on fuel deliveries made by a fuel distribution company, involving a range of calculations from fuel economy to Gross Profit Margin. A comprehensive answer sheet with full workings is appended to the worksheet. PLEASE CHECK the notes on calculating Net Sales before giving Exercise 4, part (j) to your students, as they will need some explanation of that term. DOCX and PDF worksheets supplied.

Proportions Word Problems Cards--Equivalent Ratios, Rates and Percents

Proportions Word Problems Cards--Equivalent Ratios, Rates and Percents

Help students practice showing proportional relationships in word problems. There are 26 total problems that have students practice finding rates, unit rates, equivalent ratios, and percents. There are two versions of these task cards—one with a QR code and one without. To use the cards, print and cut. Punch a hole through the circle and place a binder rings. Students can work in small group or stations to solve the problems. You can have several sets available for each group. Print on card stock and laminate for a longer lasting set of cards. To use the QR code, students need a device with a QR code reader app downloaded on it. I like i-nigma but there are several free versions available. I wanted to have students have several problems to work on for practice. You could chunk this assignment and give students a few problems at a time so it won’t be so overwhelming.
