Ratio and Proportion

'Ratio and Proportion’ ' is a blog preview of David McEwan's #MathsConf19 session/workshop being run at #MathsConf19.
We’ll look at Ratio and Proportion, from first principles through to advanced topics in GCSE. I’ll highlight the principles which link the teaching and the assessment of Ratio and Proportion in a mixture of theory, visual representations and application to exam questions. I’ll also cover how the subject develops from Foundation to Higher and how Assessment Objectives influence the questions we write. So, if you want to know why equality of ratios is more than just a definition of proportion, how to find the multiplier for an inverse percentage from a bar model, or why ratios keep appearing as fractions in exam questions, this is the session for you.
You can see David McEwan speak about "Ratio and Proportion" during #MathsConf19 at the Penistone Grammar School on Saturday 22nd June
Don't forget in July we also have our 'FREE' Maths Teacher Network events in association with Oxford University Press and AQA.
We look forward to seeing you at our next La Salle Education Event if you don't already, follow us on Twitter @LaSalleEd
