## House prices - calculate & interpret averages

Submitted by Paul Burnett on Fri, 2017-12-08 20:28

#### Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

I have found that although some learners are able to calculate averages, they often struggle to interpret the results. This resource has been designed with this in mind.

Editor’s note
With answers, plus detailed curriculum mapping for both GCSE and Functional Maths

## Fractions - real world examples

Submitted by Mike Hackman on Fri, 2017-12-08 12:30

#### Resource type: Revision material, Warm-up, Worksheet or assignment

My class of adult learners were struggling to associate fractions with real world scenarios so I created this worksheet based on honest situations.
The questions are diverse in difficulty from Entry level 2 to Level 2 making it a good worksheet as a starter or revision.

Submitted by Geraldine Cruse on Thu, 2017-11-09 16:16

A picture PPT first used to introduce the 2014 L1-2 Blood Swept Lands L1-2 Functional Maths tasks (see link below).

## Place value - underpinning for L1-2 Functional Maths

Submitted by Maggie Harnew on Sun, 2017-10-22 11:09

#### Level: L1, L2

Two separate resources: one for L1, one for L2.
I developed these because of my frustration that learners (many that have already been put through constant re-sits) are expected to tackle Functional Skills exam papers and multi-step problems before they have been taught or have mastered the underpinning knowledge and skills needed to succeed.

Many aspects of place value are covered including reading & writing large numbers, ordering numbers, negative numbers, rounding, and the correct use of < and > symbols.

## Halloween complex sentences

Submitted by Maggie Harnew on Wed, 2017-10-18 19:06

#### Resource type: Worksheet or assignment, Writing prompts

A series of tasks designed to help learners improve their sentences and hence their writing style. These tasks assume no previous knowledge of complex sentences or subordinating conjunctions. They do assume the learner is familiar with simple sentences (i.e. one clause, one verb) and compound sentences. (See my related Entry Level ‘Halloween Compound Sentences’ resource for more on compound sentences and coordinating conjunctions).

Aimed at L1-2 students but parts could be useful at Entry 3.

## Are graffiti artists criminals?

Submitted by Sean Delaney on Tue, 2017-10-10 15:59

#### Resource type: Interactive presentation, Listening and/or speaking activity, Reading comprehension, Teaching idea, Worksheet or assignment, Writing frame, Writing prompts

Two PowerPoint resources for discussion that can feed into Level 1 or 2 Functional Skills for English, Speaking & Listening.

Editor’s note
Also covers research, reading and writing. Great for prompting discussion among 14-19 year olds.

## Stanislav Petrov - past perfect, mixed conditionals, reported speech

Submitted by Eleanor Kliffen on Mon, 2017-09-25 12:24

#### Resource type: Reading comprehension, Writing prompts

An ESOL reading comprehension based on a BBC News report on the death of Stanislav Petrov, who averted a potential Cold War disaster in 1983.

The text contains several examples of past perfect, reported speech and third / mixed conditionals. The activity combines reading for gist, for detail, identifying vocabulary and identifying parts of speech.

A set of robust questions covering plans / scale drawings, calculating area, finding the best prices, percentages, ratios and much more. Mapped to the L1 and L2 Functional Maths criteria. 12 questions spread across 4 tasks: Loft Conversion, Social Club, College Canteen and Living Room.
