e v o r p m I o T g Strivin

Fractions, Decimals And Percentages Fractions, Decimals And Percentages is one of eight books in the Striving To Improve series. This series is targeted at students aged between 11 and 15 years of age who, for whatever reason, are struggling to keep up with their peers. The activities in this book are designed to prevent students from regressing any further at school. Each worksheet is based on a modi�ied curriculum, and tasks have been designed so that students can work at their own pace and without constant supervision from the teacher.

e v o r p m I o T g n i v i r St

Fractions, Decimals And Percentages For students aged 11 - 15 years who are underachieving at their year level.

Fractions, Decimals And Percentages will help students consolidate written and mental methods of calculation. Decimal place value, calculations with decimals, comparing decimal quantities, rounding decimal amounts and conversions between fractions, decimals and percentages are all explored in this book.

Teachersâ€™ Notes

This is a Ready-Ed Publications' book preview. This resource is focused on the Number and Algebra Strand of the Australian Curriculum for lower ability students and those who need further opportunity to consolidate these core areas in Mathematics.

Each section provides students with the opportunity to consolidate written and mental methods of calculation, with an emphasis on process and understanding.

The section entitled Skills With Decimals enables students to re-encounter ideas in decimal place value, calculations with decimals, comparing decimal quantities and rounding decimal amounts. These activities are a useful way to scaffold a new unit of Mathematics and will help build confidence for lower ability students to attempt more challenging problems at their year level. The section entitled Fractions, Decimals And Percentages walks students through conversions between fractions, decimals and percentages. The activities are designed to guide student learning with minimal input from the teacher and there is a strong emphasis on process and understanding. Students explore mental and written methods for performing conversion calculations. Attention is also given to real world applications and uses of these different representations, with an emphasis on understanding and using percentages. The activities can be used for individual students needing further consolidation in a mainstream classroom or as instructional worksheets for a whole class of lower ability students. The activities are tied to Curriculum Links in the Australian Curriculum ranging from grade levels of Year 5 through to Year 7 and are appropriate for students requiring extra support in Years 7, 8 and 9. It is hoped that Fractions, Decimals And Percentages will be used to help teachers provide appropriate resources and support to those students in greatest need. The book as a whole can be used as a programme of work for those students on a Modified Course or Independent Learning Programme. Activities are sufficiently guided so that students can work independently and at their own pace without constant supervision and guidance from the teacher.

Teachersâ€™ Notes

With Decimals This is aSkills Ready-Ed Publications' book preview. The activities in this section allow students to revise many of the core Number properties and ideas that are involved when working with decimal numbers. Before introducing lower ability students to new work and applications involving decimals and percentages, these activities will encourage students to consolidate concepts from previous years. The concepts covered include: Place Value

Students have the opportunity to explore what they know about place value for integers and extend this understanding to decimal place value. These activities are particularly useful before moving on to calculations and applications.

Rounding

As a concept with which many students experience difficulty, it is important to allow for a thorough consolidation of rounding decimals to specified place values. This is important work to include prior to work on scientific notation and significant figures.

Estimation

To assist students with building their appreciation and understanding of working with numbers, estimation is a core skill. These activities will encourage students to reflect on whether their calculations are providing reasonable solutions.

Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication And Division

These activities are designed to develop the mental and written learning processes of students. It may be useful to encourage students to check their answers with a calculator or appropriate technology. Full engagement with these core skills is also useful to prepare students for NAPLAN requirements.

Teachersâ€™ Notes

This is a Ready-Ed Publications' Fractions, Decimals And Percentages book preview. The activities in this section allow students to revise basic ideas involving fractions and percentages and to further extend their understanding of the relationships between the three numerical representations. The concepts covered include: Visual Representation

Students begin by examining percentages as visual fractional quantities, enabling them to draw parallels between percentages as being fractions out of one hundred.

Conversions

The emphasis on this section is students being able to convert between fractions, decimals and percentages using various mental and written strategies. A few different options are presented and explained and teacher discretion can be used to determine which strategies will be most useful for students.

Percentage Applications

A few of the core applications of percentages are given in this section which align closely with the topics in the Australian Curriculum for this age group. These are presented with mental and written strategies for understanding and engaging with the real-life applications.

Mixed Applications

The final activities in this section will be useful in determining the fluency of students with relation to their ability to work easily with fractions, decimals and percentages and with their ability to work with short applications.

* Expressing Fractions As Decimals zz Sometimes we want to express as a fraction, rather than a decimal, to make some calculations easier. The easiest form is to change the denominator to a 10, 100 or 1000 where possible.

This is a Ready-Ed Publications' book preview. Example 1

Convert

2 to a decimal. 5

If we want to change 2/5 to a decimal we first want to see if we can change the denominator to a 10.

We can since 5 divides into 10 without a remainder. So to make the 5 into a 10 we need to multiply by 2. Whatever we do to the bottom we do to the top so the 2 becomes 4. 2/5 = 4/10

Example 2

Convert

3 to a decimal. 4

If we want to change ¾ to a decimal we change the denominator to 100 (not 10, since 4 doesn’t divide into 10 evenly). We do this by multiplying top and bottom by 25. So ¾ = 75/100

So we have a 7 in the tenths column and a 5 in the hundredths column. So ¾ =0.75

This means we have a 4 in the tenths column. So 2/5 = 0.4

* Expressing Decimals As Fractions

This is a Ready-Ed Publications' book preview. zz To convert a decimal to a fraction we simply need to look at the place value of the last decimal digit.

Example

Convert 0.24 to a fraction.

Look at the decimal 0.24; we see that the last digit is in the hundredths column. So 0.24 = 24/100. We now simplify our answer by dividing top and bottom by 4 (the largest common denominator) and we have 6/25.

* What’s The Discount? One of the most familiar areas where we use percentages every day is when we go shopping at the sales. You’ll see lots of signs telling you the percentage discounts available. For example, if you want to buy a pair of jeans that are on sale at 20% off the normal retail price of $180, we can work out the sale price like this:

This is a Ready-Ed Publications' book preview. 20 × 180 = $36 100

Sale Price = 180 - 36 = $144

Task a * Calculate the discount available on the sale items below. a. 10% off $3000

b. 35% off $250

Calculate the sale price for the items below. c. 15% off $850

d. 8% off $400

Task b * Using the same method as the one to calculate a discount, calculate the percentage of each of the following amounts.

a. 5% of 200 grams

b. 10% of 54 km

c. 25% of 800 m

d. 12% of 3L

e. 84% of 5000 cm2

f. 27% of 10 hours
