## Lesson Starters

Here are some suggestions for whole-class, projectable resources which can be used at the beginnings of each lesson in this block.

### 1st Lesson #### Quick Percentages

Simple percentage questions appear on screen then fade every 8 seconds. This Starter is customisable.

### 2nd Lesson #### Odd Percent Out

A number of simple percentage calculations are given. The answers are in pairs. Which is the odd one out?

### 3rd Lesson Here are the simple percentage calculations everyone should be able to do in their heads.

Some of the Starters above are to reinforce concepts learnt, others are to introduce new ideas while others are on unrelated topics designed for retrieval practice or and opportunity to develop problem-solving skills.
