Applied Ratio

Lots of applied ratio here!

  • This new lesson on three-way ratio problem solving looks at using given ratios to create others. Students will need to understand equivalence of ratios and sharing into a ratio.

  • Recipes is a common exam question and the main task of this lesson is fully differentiated and focuses on the menu for the restaurant Pythagoras' Place. The extension task requires the students to work out ingredients for Shrove Tuesday for the class in question.

  • Best buys features lots of opportunity for discussion and plenty of relevant maths. Pair work, visual explanations and a differentiated main task with answers.

  • Exchange rates is another highly relevant topic using current exchange rates (use the given link). Answers will change along with the rates so I have not included answers for this lesson.
