A blog about teaching and learning in a maths classroom.
I've added an additional game under the Fractions category on MathsStarters Bingo:
I recently made a Percentages Foldable (common percentages and their fraction and decimal equivalences) to include in our school newsletter. The idea was to encourage students (or parents) to make the foldable and put it on the fridge, or somewhere else prominent, to encourage the remembering of some common percentage comversions.
Here's a self-checking, simple questions, as you get the answers correct the tree lights up.
Nothing fancy. Just needed something for a computer lab tomorrow.
Each year I use the TV Show, The Biggest Loser, as an application of percentages – here is a worksheet for 2012 setting out the contestant data that your students can use to perform some calculations.
I’m completing this activity earlier than normal this year, so the data is from earlier in the competition.

How do you make a unit on percentages richer / project-based / engaging / authentic?
The Biggest Loser, the Australian version, is again on television. This year, Year 9 are looking at Percentages at the same time.
‘The Biggest Loser’, the Australian version, is currently on Channel 10. Conveniently, it appears on TV the same time we’re looking at Percentages with Year 8 providing a great connection between popular culture and maths.
