Ideas for a revision class on the theme of making a cake. I have included a cake recipe by Delia Smith and some prices of cake ingredients and items for cake decorating.

I first used this activity with a mixed group of young adult learners with a range of learning difficulties. I found it worked better to give them a list of prices rather than asking them to find their own, because then they could focus on the main tasks.

Resource type: Investigation or project, Worksheet or assignment

Six Functional Maths tasks based on a theme of cooking pancakes in a college canteen. Plenty of space is provided for showing working out and many questions have no single correct answer (as, in a true functional fashion, these will depend on the students’ ideas and research).

Covers number, ratio, tallies, fractions, money and measures. All three process skills are amply covered. Particularly suitable for Shrove Tuesday but can be used all year round.
