#### Resource type: Interactive worksheet

Budgeting Spreadsheet: Students enter amounts into a self calculating spreadsheet to work out a persons budget for the month.
This resource is best used around the topic of budgeting and bank accounts. I used it alongside the excellent Barclays Money Skills site.
Students enter the items from the A student’s Spending for the Month into the Budgeting Spread sheet. This automatically calculates the totals and allows the student to think about the budget without the barrier some find in doing the maths.

## Market Stall

Submitted by Ruth Read on Wed, 2013-02-13 16:20

#### Resource type: Assessment material, Investigation or project

I put this together to explore number calculations and word problems with a mixed group of adult learners, looking at estimating, ways of checking your calculations and ways of reversing calculations.

The learners really enjoyed discussing the idea of running a market stall (they worked in pairs) and came up with lots of ideas of things they could sell. I encouraged them to keep the number of items and the prices/costs simple – otherwise the maths got a bit out of hand!

Submitted by Stella Jales on Sun, 2012-04-29 16:05

#### Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

This resource is adapted from, and complements, the L1/2 resource with the same title created by Claire Douglas (see below).

The activity is based on recent changes to the minimun wage (Nov 2011). Students have to read the information given on the shop employees’ ages and new minimun pay to work out how much the staff are paid for their work.

I used this activity with my E3 students and they enjoyed it.

## Debt dilemmas

Submitted by Carrie Bray on Thu, 2012-02-23 20:17

#### Resource type: Discussion points, Game, Investigation or project, Worksheet or assignment

An activity to explore money management and negative numbers. Be prepared to signpost students if need be.

The activity starts with discussing who is most likely to get into debt and then by recognising that anyone can if they don’t have good money skills.

Then students use *place value dice (hundreds, tens and units) to fill in their budget sheets. If you don’t have such dice you could prepare the sheets by writing in amounts to differentiate for each student.
