## Calculating with Time

#### Resource type: Investigation or project, Worksheet or assignment

I wanted to create a resource to enable my students to practise calculating with time.

Most of the students work in Wiltshire, but live in Yorkshire, so I thought it would be fun if they explored different travel methods to Yorkshire to see which was the fastest. The travel distances and times were from the Internet and I created this resource differentiated for Levels 1 and 2.

Editor’s note
Clever differentiation.

## Distances from my home

#### Level: E2, E3, L1

A worksheet where learners research and record findings using Google maps. The idea is to get them familiar with reference points for distances. Gives learners an idea how far places are from them in real terms, and teaches them to estimate with measurements.
Also provides good practice with the Google maps app on phones, Mac or PC.

## The World of Weather

Submitted by Alexander Ross on Tue, 2013-09-10 19:40

#### Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

A data chart of average monthly high and low temperatures for a selection of world cities is used to answer functional maths questions.

Skills tested include accuracy of reading data, ordering positive and negative numbers, calculating the mean and range of data including negative numbers.

There is a tricky anagram to finish off the worksheet, which will appeal to some leaners who like puzzles and wordskills.

The chart could be used separately and many other questions devised from the information it contains.
