Bar models are used throughout this worksheet as a tool for students to divide amounts into given ratios.
The worksheet is scaffolded by including drawn bar models for sections A to D. The scaffolding is decreased as labels are removed and students have to label more of the bar models themselves.
In section B, learners will be dividing amounts into given ratios.
Section C asks students to use one known amount to find the second amount and in section D, the difference is known.
Finally, section E is made up of three questions and students must use an appropriate method to solve each one including constructing their own bar models.
