Why do students need to know about percentages?
Percentages are everywhere in the real world. For example, you may see discounts of ‘10% off’ in your local shop and it’s important to be able to work out if the deal is worth it!
Beyond this, percentages are closely linked to fractions and decimals. We can often be asked to convert between all three and having a good understanding of percentages will help with this.
