I've just done the quiz with full marks and my tips for doing it are...
If you need to, use paper!
Revise on your decimal facts!
Take your time!
If you need help, ask!
Good luck!

This is hard and made us think quite a lot. I got 8/8 but again it is hard. My advise would be to...

- Take your time and read the question carefully.
- Do working out (nothing wrong with that!)
- Ask for help if needed.
- Go through it with Mr Jones.

See you at the end!! 8)

This test is really quite tricky!
Some tips that may help you are: If you don't get a question when you first look at it don't give up! Also, you don't have to do all the sums in your head - you could always get a piece of paper or a whiteboard ( if you are at school)

Main thing : Don't give up!

This test is quite hard!
my tips are: If 1/4 is 0.25 what could 1/8 be?
If 1/10 is 0.1 what could 9/10 be?

Don't always go with your first choice
good luck. (I got number 7 wrong)

But what facts or operations could you describe that would help other people with this test? For example, how do we convert a fraction to a decimal, using a calculator (if you're not sure, check out the last Flipped Class)?
