Submitted by Mark Sergison on Mon, 2011-04-11 12:08

Numeracy: Functional Maths - data handling, HD1/L1.3, HD1/L1.4

Context: Leisure Travel Tourism

Level: L1

Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

Written as a contextualised resource for Leisure, Travel and Tourism students but should appeal to all club-loving teenagers. Makes a good quick practice / revision / reminder exercise.
Aimed only at Level 1 students with definitions of both the mean average and range at the top, I find that these students don’t find the maths particularly difficult; they just have a problem remembering the definitions.

Learners will consider the importance of the purpose, content, style and tone of letters; and write a suitable letter of complaint from a given scenario.
After initial discussion I ask students what they think of my efforts to compose a letter of complaint about a leisure centre and I show them two letters.
