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.

This is an Excel file with a basic odd/even activity. I took inspiration from Jean Thomas’ “Reveal the hidden shapes!” activity from 2005.

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.

A set of Formula 1 scenarios based on the four rules of mathematics and using formulae expressed in words and/or numbers. This resource tests students’ ability to use formulae to solve problems based on a motor racing car travelling on a race track.

#### Resource type: Game, Teaching idea

#### Level: L1, L2

A game for 2 players to help with multiplying decimals with or without a calculator.

Learners take turns to choose 2 numbers to multiply, then cover up the answer on the grid. This continues until a player has 4 counters/initials in a row(diagonally, horizontally or vertically).

Prompts can be used for learners to pick a target answer and to try to work out which 2 decimals are going to give that answer.

**Editor’s note**

Laminate for re-use. A great game.
