## The room - Functional Maths challenge

Submitted by Linda M Hoole on Mon, 2011-12-19 21:11

#### Resource type: Investigation or project, Worksheet or assignment

A scaffolded investigation created for my Level 1 numeracy group but ideal for, and fully mapped to, L1-2 Functional maths.
Part 1 involves reading a description of a room and drawing simple scale diagrams (a grid is provided) before pricing up a carpet from a discount company.
Part 2 is more complex: calculate the length of skirting board, wallpaper, paint, dado rail and door framing required.

## Designing a garden

Submitted by Jane Redgrave on Mon, 2009-09-28 17:25

#### Level: L1, L2

A challenging project where students must research, plan and cost a luxury garden. Includes scale diagrams, money, and shape and space problems (paving slabs). Extension options cover percentages and averages. Great for horticulture students or anyone with an interest in gardening.
Also ideal for L1-2 Functional Maths.
The project also involves web investigation (costs of garden materials) and writing a covering letter (selling the finished garden design) and therefore also covers Functional ICT and Functional English.

## Buying herbs at the garden centre

Submitted by Susan Brocklehurst on Fri, 2009-09-25 17:25

#### Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

Buying herbs at the garden centre is based on packets of seeds and covers addition and subtraction of decimals (money), range and mean, and scale drawings. Great for horticulture students or anyone with an interest in gardening.
The problem solving nature of many questions and the drawing a scale diagram task also makes this ideal for E3-L1 Functional Maths.
