#### 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

#### 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!
