Ratio Revision Interactive Spreadsheet

Ratio Revision Interactive Spreadsheet

An Excel Workbook containing five spreadsheets to practice the GCSE skills of ratio and proportion. All sheets have an associated answer sheet going through each question. The questions have multiple choice answers, generated using the answer and potential misconceptions. If the correct letter is given it turns the answer box green, or red if incorrect. Note that your computer will need Microsoft Excel with Calculation Options set to 'Manual' and Macros enabled. There is a set up sheet which gives some advice on how to do this. Clicking the 'More Questions' black square will clear the sheet and recalculate questions and answers. Excel's Zoom Bar can be used to scale the sheet up and down to fit on your monitor. Note that as the questions are randomised, some questions could be repeated. With a constant number of re-generated questions (and answers), students can practice this to their heart's content. After all, practice makes perfect!

Colour by equivalent ratios with extension

Colour by equivalent ratios with extension

As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising simplifying ratios. It addresses the common misconception of order e.g 2:3 is not the same as 3:2. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires three different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. Students solve the answers to the questions and colour based on their solution. This then creates a pattern which looks great on a classroom wall. It also makes it very easy to tell which students understand and which need help as their answers are easy to see from a distance. Two solutions do not fit the pattern and students are encouraged to find their own questions that will fit the pattern allowing for stretch and challenge. The solution is the pattern displayed with the white spaces where students need to find a solution that fits the pattern. All feedback gratefully accepted
