finding percentages of amounts for weak ability

Overall rating 4 out of 54.6 (7 ratings)

Last updated 22 July 2014, created 06 September 2012, viewed 14,046

I used this as a way of getting my weakest class to practice 1%, 10%, 25% and 50%. Spent one lesson looking at what a percentage is and how to divide and multiply by by 10 and 100 etc. this has a few problems also. they are very simple and can be made more difficult by changing these.

Thank you. This is a fantastic overview for my class who can then splinter off and work on harder or easier problems.

A very useful resource that clearly explains how to find the main %s. This is suggested to be used for very weak pupils but would certainly do a job reminding my Foundation GCSE class how to find percentages!! The instructions would help even the weakest of pupils. The questions then build into worded questions which again is an essential skill.
