This unit covers everything to do with decimals at GCSE foundation level, including addition and subtraction, rounding
Lesson 1 - Ordering decimals using lesson plan and resources below. This is a very detailed and easy to follow lesson plan.
Lessons 2-5 come from the MEP and contain the following useful resources:
Detailed lesson plan - a good place to start, the lesson plan provides guidance on how to teach the topic and example questions that the teacher can ask.
Mental tests - these are split into different ability level (standard and academic) and have two tests in each one. A lesson could be started by reading out the questions to the pupils and recordeing their results. Then after you have revised the questions they got wrong the second mental test could be read out. Progress can easily be measured in this way.
Overhead slides - these are good for displaying on the digital projector as questions for pupils to do.
Extra exercises - These are good to use as worksheets for the pupils.
