Understanding Percentages


The five units of the PETS percentages course, which follows on from the five units of the decimals course, is part of a larger project that aims to cover the most problematic areas in the Foundation and Primary phases of the numeracy curriculum, and is designed specifically to help teachers overcome gaps in their own subject knowledge.

This short course has been extensively researched and developed by practising teachers in Barrydale in partnership with the PETS team. They have worked closely to create a course based on their direct classroom experience that addresses their real needs.
