This is the last in our worksheet series of recipe problems and is ideal for any students who would benefit from the extra multiplication and division challenge that Recipes (C) brings. Recipe problems are the perfect conceptual introduction to direct proportion for many students. They remain ever popular with exam boards and, let’s face it, form an important life skill!
In Recipes (C), students have 6 recipe cards that need scaling by an integer and fractional scale factors. Examples include recipes from 6 to 15 and 8 to 20.
Your learners will face challenges such as 1 ½ x 2 ½ and should be encouraged to complete this worksheet without a calculator.
