Percentages using Multipliers - Increasing and Decreasing

Percentages using Multipliers - Increasing and Decreasing

These four structured worksheets show how to use multipliers to decrease or increase an amount by a percentage. The aim is to show students how to use this efficient method as an alternative to calculating the change then adding or subtracting it. This will make them especially useful for teaching this tricky topic to foundation level GCSE students in the new specification. The answers are included. The questions ask students to use different methods to calculate the answers and check they are the same. There is a page of word problems to apply the method to real life situations. This topic usually skips by so quickly at school that many students miss it and are left perplexed when they are expected to understand how to do reverse percentage calculations. These pages are ideal for independent learning or revision and follow on from the 'Calculating Percentages using Multipliers' resource.

Triple Brackets

Triple Brackets

This collection of five worksheets ( complete with answers and working out ) covers the basics of multiplying out triple brackets then moves on to using the results in different situations. Students are eased into the topic with a little revision of the multiplying out that they will already have mastered then there is plenty of practise with progressively harder examples of multiplying out triple brackets including those with repeated factors. The extension sheets include proofs and finding the difference between two expressions ( a challenge in itself to remember to do x³ +3 x² + 3x + 1 )- ( x³ - 3x² + x - 1 ) carefully ! ). Geometric problems involving cube diagrams to illustrate the expansion of ( a + b )³ will provide useful extension work for the brightest GCSE students. Evaluate 1.1³ to show how powers of numbers can be found using expansions. The sheets could be used independently by your brightest y9s and above as they include instructions.
