Percentages for Key Stage 4
There are four resources on this page that utilise ICT and involve perentages.
Two card matching games
In order of difficulty of the calculation are:
Matching Fractions and Percentages
Percentages and Fractions Card Game
These two games encourage mental agility and familiarity with the equivalence of fractions, decimals and percentages.
could be extended to work on any grid and with two dice and played in the classsroom on different rectangular grids. It can be used to emphasise a percentage as part of a whole and that therefore a percentage can have a different absolute value depending on the size of the whole.
This modelling problem
can be used as a whole class activity - looking at the effects of different percentage changes in ready-made spreadsheets (see the
) or as a starting point for creating models of their own.
Meet the team
The NRICH Project aims to enrich the mathematical experiences of all learners. To support this aim, members of the NRICH team work in a wide range of capacities, including providing professional development for teachers wishing to embed rich mathematical tasks into everyday classroom practice.
