Understand what a percentage is and its connection to fractions

In today's lesson, we will begin by consolidating our understanding of percentages before applying this to a range of problems including calculating percentages of amounts and comparison of percentages, including percentage decrease. We will then develop our understanding of statistics, learning about the mean as an average and calculate the mean in different contexts, interpret and draw line graphs and learn how to interpret pie charts and compare data presented in more than one pie chart.
