Arithmetic is the study of numbers, particularly with regard to simple operations like addition, subtraction, division and mulitplication. It is also concerned with using these operations to solve problems.

A fraction is a part of a whole. For example 3/4 or three quarters.

Decimals are a system of representing fractions using a base of ten. For example one half is 1/2 or 5/10 or 0.5.

Percentages show fractions as parts of 100. For exampe 20% is 20 parts per hundred or 20/100.

Ratios are a way of comparing two or more quanties by considering the quotient of the quantities. They are written in the form, for example, as 2:1

High school math students can use these numeracy problems for study purposes. High School Teachers - you're welcome to copy these worksheets for classroom use.

## A note about year levels

Where appropriate each worksheet is given a year level that it is applicable to. As we're all in different countries the year level corresponds to the number of years at school. So, for example, a worksheet for Year 11 is for students in their 11th year of school.
Worksheets for earlier or later years may still be suitable for you.
