## 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!

## 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.
