Sunday, 05 April 2009 | 0 Comments

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 logoLike 2008, I’ve put together a worksheet (see below) based on the show as part of a lesson on applying percentages.

Contact me if you’d like the original Word (worksheet) and Excel (solutions) documents.

Data for the worksheet is sourced from Wikipedia and The Biggest Loser web-site.
