## E2-E3 Make a cake Functional Maths revision

#### Resource type: Hands-on / practical activity, Investigation or project, Revision material, Teaching idea, Worksheet or assignment

Ideas for a revision class on the theme of making a cake. I have included a cake recipe by Delia Smith and some prices of cake ingredients and items for cake decorating.

I first used this activity with a mixed group of young adult learners with a range of learning difficulties. I found it worked better to give them a list of prices rather than asking them to find their own, because then they could focus on the main tasks.

## Practice L1 Numeracy test

Submitted by Dave Clapham on Tue, 2009-10-13 17:25

#### Level: L1

A fabulous 40 question practice paper written to provide challenging extra practice after a group of learners participated in a very difficult L1 numeracy test (the levels of the national test certainly do seem to be erratic at times, and definitely harder than when it was first introduced). Unlike the national test, the questions in this test are not multiple choice – making it equally suitable for initial assessment in both L1 and L2 classes.

## Level 1 Numeracy facts and figures jigsaw

Submitted by Andrea McCulloch on Wed, 2008-05-28 16:53

#### Level: L1

16 piece triangular jigsaw where you must match the facts and figures to the correct definitions / answers. Makes a great revision activity – covers all area of the curriculum. Andrea suggests that as the print is quite small on the standard sized puzzle, tutors might find it helpful to print out the larger version of the puzzle (select Output – large, i.e. three pieces per A4 sheet).

All Tarsia jigsaws can also be printed out as flashcards / dominoes.
You will need Tarsia Formulator in order to use this resource.
