Dadsworksheets hosts a myriad of useful maths resources – both onscreen and printables. The Fraction and Percentage calculators are already listed separately.

Other useful items include:

“Online timer”: is great for use as a classroom timer, cooking timer, test timer or any other type of countdown timer you can think of. The ‘Zoom’ button simplifies the timer display and makes this timer work very well on projectors or smart boards in the classroom. The timer will countdown in seconds, MM:SS or HH:MM:SS format.

A huge set of extremely useful resources developed by Northern College as part of an LSIS project.

Entry 3 resource are split into four sections

  • Working with Whole Numbers and Simple Fractions
  • Working With Decimals And Money

  • Working With Information From Lists, Tables, Charts And Graphs

Level 1 resources into five sections:

Skillsheets have some rather nice, completely free, Functional Maths PPTs based on driving.
One is based on data handling and looks to be aimed at L1-2. The other focuses on units and is aimed at E3-L2.

There are also lots of other very useful maths worksheets – available as printed photo-copiable books or on CD. These include a three sets of Functional Maths sheets (E3, L1 and L2) plus pre-Entry maths worksheets. Sample pages are available free of charge or you can purchase books or CDs from £15 per set.

Sainsbury's Money Matters

This is a marvellous and very practical site full of accessible adult resources that are ideal for teaching maths AND English.

Many resources are also great for functional / embedded learning. For example A strawberry window garden would make a great text for Entry and L1 horticulture students.

Mr Mathematics

Submitted by Maggie Harnew on Wed, 2012-10-31 16:04

New site from a UK maths teacher who wants to share the many resources he has created to aid conceptual teaching. Files are for interactive whiteboards (Smart Notebook and ActivInspire Flipchart format) and the majority come with a Word document lesson plan (these are great!).
There is also a section on proof and some Tarsia PDF resources.

Editor’s note
Although the resources are categorised by GCSE grades A* to G many are ideal for E3-L2 Functional Maths.
