KS4 students aiming for grades 6 or above can complete this worksheet about recurring decimals without using the algebraic method.
Section A starts with a match-up of ninths and their decimal equivalents and encourages students to notice any patterns. This pattern spotting is continued in section B as students can use an example given to find recurring decimal equivalents of fractions with 99 or 999 as the denominator. Section B pushes students further. Here, learners are given 2
examples of the conversions where the fraction denominators are 90 and 990 and asked to find further equivalences like this.
