## Distances from my home

Submitted by Martyn Staines on Wed, 2014-10-01 10:01

#### Level: E2, E3, L1

A worksheet where learners research and record findings using Google maps. The idea is to get them familiar with reference points for distances. Gives learners an idea how far places are from them in real terms, and teaches them to estimate with measurements.
Also provides good practice with the Google maps app on phones, Mac or PC.

## Follow me cards - measuring

Submitted by Ruth Read on Thu, 2011-09-15 12:21

#### Resource type: Game, Revision material, Warm-up

This worked well as a bit of revision on measuring for a mixed class E2-L2. Also makes a good warm-up activity.
I’ve used different colours for easier and harder answers, so you can differentiate when you give the cards out (blue ones are supposed to be a bit easier, red ones a bit harder, and purple in between).

## Making pancakes Functional Maths

Submitted by Nicola Smith on Sun, 2011-03-06 12:27

#### Level: E3, L1

An adapted version of Judith White’s pancake resource aimed at Level 1 (see below). I have created this resource to use with Entry 3 (and slightly higher E3/L1) learners.

Four tasks based on a traditional pancake recipe. Space is provided for showing working out and one task involves independent web research.

Covers number, simple proportion, money, time and measures. All three process skills are covered.
