This eBook introduces fraction, percentages and ratio, what fractions and equivalent fractions are and how pie charts depict them, what proper fractions, improper fractions and mixed numbers are, what ordering factions involves, how fractions are converted to decimals, as well as what percentages are, converts between percentages and fractions as well as decimal and introduces ratio.
This eBook is part of our range of Key Stage 2 (KS2) maths eBooks that are fully aligned with the UK Governments national curriculum.
Our Key Stage 3 (KS2) maths eBooks comprise three principle sections. These are, notably:
•Number and Algebra
•Shape, Space and Measure
In addition, there exists for Key Stage 2 (KS2) a Publications Guide eBook, a Mental Maths eBook and a Times Table Practice eBook. We also produce a combined Key Stage 1 (KS1) and Key Stage 2 (KS2) Times Table Practice eBook.
Our maths eBooks are produced such as that as well as a Publications Guide, and three principle publications corresponding to the principle sections (Number and Algebra, Shape, Space and Measures as well as Handling Data) there are individual modules produced within each principle section which are published as eBooks.
Fractions, Percentages and Ratio is a module within the Number and Algebra principle section our Key Stage 2 (KS2) publications. It is one module out of a total of eight modules in that principle section, the others being:
•Number Patterns and Sequences
•Addition and Subtraction Practice
•Multiplication and Division Practice
After studying Primary School 'KS2 (Key Stage 2) - Maths – Fractions, Percentages and Ratio - Ages 7-11' eBook your child or the student should be confidently able to:
-understand unit fractions such as one-half, one-third and one-quarter as well as fractions that are several parts of one whole such as two-thirds, three quarters or four-fifths as well as locate them on a number line.
-use fractions as indicators of shapes and quantities.
-understand the notion of equivalent fractions and be able to simplify fractions by cancelling common factors.
-compare and order simple fractions for example by converting them to fractions with a common denominator.
-recognise the equivalence between the decimal and fraction forms of halves, quarters, tenths and hundredths.
-understand that 'percentage' means 'parts per 100', and that it can be used for conversions, comparisons and calculations.
-find the percentages of whole number quantities, using a calculator where appropriate.
-recognise the approximate proportions of a whole and use simple fractions and percentages to describe them, explaining their methods and reasoning.
