I haven't been using the Fruit Machine site I posted about anywhere near enough with my classes lately.

But I'm going to use it today with Year 8, as a bingo activity for converting decimals and fractions to percentages.

I'm going to try this using 4x4 answer grids, in teams, and give team points for correct answers as well as a bumper bonus for getting a line first, but you can of course do it however you like, and doesn't need to exclusively be a bingo activity.

Here's the list of questions I've made. It covers all percentages from 1 to 100 and I've thrown in a few extra difficulties with square and prime numbers, and unit conversions too, just to make it a little more tricky.

You can cut the list down a bit if you want to make it into a shorter activity of course.

To use, just go to the Fruit Machine site and copy and paste in the list:
