Increase and Decrease by a Percentage
The below QQI BINGO © gives your class a selection of answers to fill in their bingo grids. Once they have filled their grids, you reveal one question at a time, and students cross off the answers if they have them. The first to get a line or a full house calls "BINGO" and wins.
Choose which types of percentages you would like to deal with (NonCalculator percentages are 1%, 5%, 10%, 20%, 25%, 50%, 75%).
Decide on if you want to have questions involving increasing by a percentage or decreasing, or choose Random to get a mixture of both.
Finally decide if you want the calculate the actual final amount, or just to find the multiplier needed to do the calculation.
After the students have answered the question, you can reveal the answer.

Ideas for Teachers
This is a classic bingo activity, where students choose the answers to fill in their grid (either 3 by 3 or 4 by 4). Then questions are shown one at a time and if a student has the answer in their grid they cross it off. The winner is the first to cross off all their answers and call BINGO. Students love this game, and can be used to start or end a lesson.
