Submitted by Martyn Staines on Wed, 2014-10-01 10:01

Numeracy: Functional Maths - measures, shape, money, Length weight capacity temperature scales

ICT: Finding and selecting information

Context: Independent living, Leisure Travel Tourism

Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

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.

Budgeting Spreadsheet: Students enter amounts into a self calculating spreadsheet to work out a persons budget for the month.
This resource is best used around the topic of budgeting and bank accounts. I used it alongside the excellent Barclays Money Skills site.
Students enter the items from the A student’s Spending for the Month into the Budgeting Spread sheet. This automatically calculates the totals and allows the student to think about the budget without the barrier some find in doing the maths.

Resource type: Investigation or project, Reading comprehension, Warm-up, Worksheet or assignment

Level: E2, E3, L1, L2

This is an adaptation of Murder at the Grange, which my students have always enjoyed.

There’s a version for L1-2 and one for E2-3, although there is some overlap. In the L1-2 version I have used 24-hour times.
