## Magnetic Percent Bar

Percent bar provides teachers with a colourful resource to demonstrate percentages tangibly.

#### Overview

• Children often struggle to grasp the concept of percentages. The magnetic percent bar simplifies this by turning percentages into visual and tangible components. By using the various coloured strips on the base, teachers can illustrate percentages as parts of a whole, making problem-solving more intuitive and engaging.

• This tool ensures lessons are dynamic and aligned with the UK curriculum across multiple Key Stages. It helps Key Stage 3 students define percentages and understand percentage changes. Year 6 students benefit from recalling equivalences between fractions, decimals, and percentages. It also supports Year 3 objectives in recognising and showing equivalent fractions using diagrams.

• The set includes a Getting Started guide with four activities, thirty-one colour-coded strips ranging from 5 to 50 percent, and a write-on/wipe-off background. Use with a dry-erase marker (not included). Durable materials ensure long-term use, providing educators with a valuable teaching tool.
