In this class, we will be looking at the bar modelling method to calculate percentages of an amount.
Students will firstly be shown how to figure out a range of different amounts without using a calculator, including 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% and 50%. They will then use these key calculations to work out more complex calculations such as 67% of an amount.
This short burst class will give students the confidence to tackle any percentage calculation without the use of a calculator setting them up for Non-Calculator assessments but also improving their math skills for use in day to day life.

Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
This session is suitable for GCSE Maths pupils who want to recap Percentages, or students in S4 or S5.
