# Adult Numeracy N2/L1.3

Recognise equivalencies between common fractions, percentages and decimals (e.g. 50% = 1/2 or 0.25 = 1/4) and use these to find part or whole-number quantities (a) Know common fraction equivalents, e.g. half, quarters, fifths, tenths.

Adult Numeracy Core Curriculum, Basic Skills Agency / DfEE (2001, 2006)

Simple yet very useful and effective templates for depicting and/or visualising fractions, decimals, percentages and ratios.

This is a set of worksheets in a MS Excel workbook that deals with fractions.

- Sheet one: a set of pictures (pie charts) that shows fractions from halves to tenths

- Sheet two: equivalent fractions with two pie charts, learners can input fractions and see if they are equivalent by looking at the shape of the pie charts

- Sheet three: starting to look at fractions being equivalent to decimals with two pie charts one for fractions and one for decimals

Five wonderful sets of multiple choice revision questions covering Level 1 ratio, mean & range, fractions, percentages, and number (mostly place value & rounding). Each set consists of 9 cards and is individually mapped to the numeracy curriculum.

Cut up into cards and use as required. Use individual sets for targeted revision or mix with other sets of cards for general revision.

Originally written for the written for the AQA Unit Award (mathematics) unit number 74964, this purely numeric (no “word type problems”) set of questions is ideal for revision or homework. Covers all combinations of conversion: fraction to decimal, percentage to fraction, etc, etc. plus simplifying / cancelling down. Mapped to adult numeracy and Functional Maths.

This is a PowerPoint presentation to use when teaching or revising the basic concepts of fractions and exploring common misconceptions held by students. This presentation also explores the link between fractions, decimals and percentages and the sharing of fraction amounts.

I have used the resource with Functional Skills and Skills for Life classes ranging from Entry 2 to Level 2 students.

This spreadsheet is designed to enable students to check their own work; but also to learn about what happens when you add two decimals, or multiply two fractions, and so on.

The spreadsheet consists of the following sheets:

A fabulous way to practise decimal, fraction and percentage equivalents. Set of 32 cards (Excel) and accompanying rules (PDF). For two or more players.

FDP Happy Families card game is a great way to reinforce and assess learners’ knowledge of fraction-decimal-percentage equivalents.

With detailed instructions and ideas for alternative games.

**Editor's note.** Now fully updated to reflect the new 2018 Functional Skills content that comes into effect September 2019.

A hands-on, very visual introduction to percentages and simple equivalent fractions.

Athought-provoking set of questions covering fractions, decimals and percentages; plus bar charts and dual line graphs (and some general questions about becoming a Fairtrade college).
