A challenging series of tasks based on food nutrition labels. Also covers ordering/comparing decimals, pie charts, extracting information from tables, etc.

A very topical resource originally written for a group of older returning learners to help them see how maths skills can help in everyday life. Covers decimal place value and ordering; subtracting and multiplying decimals (inc. x10); and finding the range.

A useful, very effective template for making place value sliders. The laminated Slider allows the learner to see the digits moving left or right when they multiply or divide by powers of 10 and discourages the use of ‘adding zeros’ or ‘moving the decimal point’ which are not now used in schools. Covers whole numbers up to 7 digits and decimals to 2 decimal places.

Practical and easy way to introduce decimals: use when multiplying and dividing decimals by 10, 100. Also useful when converting metric units, rounding decimals and for a general understanding of exactly what a decimal is! One partially completed chart to complete (with examples), answer sheet and a blank chart for students to use as they wish.
