BO075: Teacher Tools: Numeracy Activites- Fractions, Decimals and Percentages
This book is designed to be used in conjunction with the Numeracy Projects Fractions, Decimals and Percentages book. It offers activity sheets which cover every lesson taught in the Numeracy Project. Every activity sheet is broken into four sections. Typically students require more time at the materials stage in these strategies which is reflected in the length and detail of the materials section over the two page activity sheet:
This book contains answers and other photocopiable material such as fly flips and number arrays.This resource may be photocopied for use within the house or school of purchase.
- Prior knowledge required: This section gives students a chance to practice the skills which are a prerequisite to successfully completing this activity.
- New Strategy with materials: The questions posed during this part of the activity sheet are suitable for use with materials. The materials required are described at the top of this section.
- New strategy using imaging: This section is the next stepping stone from the materials section. Here materials are not provided. Thinking maps are often drawn here to model how a students should think about/ image the problem in his/her head.
- Word problems using number properties: These questions test students ability to generalise what they have learnt into real world questions.
