## Formula 1 Functional Maths

Submitted by Bruce Nightingale on Sun, 2017-09-17 20:23

#### Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

A set of Formula 1 scenarios based on the four rules of mathematics and using formulae expressed in words and/or numbers. This resource tests students’ ability to use formulae to solve problems based on a motor racing car travelling on a race track. Some of the scenarios test the students ability to convert units to get a sensible answer. I encourage my students to estimate the answers before attempting for real! Some do, some don’t …

Editor’s note
With Functional Maths mapping and sample answers.

## Number patterns & sequences for Functional Maths

Submitted by Maggie Harnew on Mon, 2017-04-17 17:21

#### Resource type: Assessment material, Worksheet or assignment

Although many learners find patterns and sequences (including odd & even numbers) straightforward, there is a sizeable proportion that really struggle – particularly those with dyslexia and/or dyscalculia.

This resource grew from my frustration at the lack of practice material available for this topic at Entry Levels 2 and 3 in my one to one support sessions.
