Submitted by Nicola Smith on Thu, 2017-05-18 17:57

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

A range of questions that I have designed for my Functional Skills Maths learners.The focus is on the four operations (+ – x ÷) with wide coverage of measures and money.

There are two sets of similar, but differentiated, questions so that learners at both both levels can complete them in the same lesson. Each set of questions cover several themes (dog show and music festival) followed by a set of mixed questions and a final page of stretch and challenge tasks.

## BetterWorld Books

#### Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

This is a worksheet based on data supplied by a librarian. The library had been collecting second hand books from people and sent them to BetterWorld Books. The librarian told me that 688 books had been sent and then provided the information of what would be saved, earned or donated if there were 1000 books sent. The worksheet asks the students to work out the quantities for all the books that had been sent.
