Functional Skills Maths Level 1

Submitted by John Callaghan on Tue, 2017-08-29 14:11

Functional Skills Maths Level 1 module information, video introduction and test papers, including level 1 Maths fact sheets, activity sheets and answer sheets.

Functional Skills text books are a rare commodity and this pair of Level 2 Functional English books fills a well-needed gap. They’ve been written with the Edexcel on-screen reading and writing assessments in mind, but are ideal for learners taking paper-based or online Functional Skills assessments from any awarding body.

The books are cleverly designed so that each page in the revision guide matches to the same numbered page in the workbook.
