Today we are going to look at scale factors within our Maths lesson. The lesson should take you about an hour or a little bit less - depending how much you can remember from previous lessons within school.
Start of by carefully reading through the Learning Reminders which are attached below as pictures. Remember that scale factor is how much you may need to multiply “up” or divide “down” the information you have been given; it is related to ratio.
When you feel like you are at a stage to practise scale factors you can do so by using the practise sheets below. You will have a choice of mild (easier) or hot (harder) and there are answers at the bottom of each set of questions so you can check - but make sure you don’t just copy the answers down. Remember to show your working out!
If you find the practises a bit tricky, have a go at the support task sheet!
When you feel you are confident with scale factors complete the assessment questions - these are the “green sheets” you usually complete in class. Today’s assessment task is in the form of an investigation.
Make sure you send us your questions and/or your work. Enjoy.
