Submitted by Han Dunsterville on Sun, 2011-04-17 13:37

#### Level: E2, E3, L1, L2

This spreadsheet generates numbers randomly to help with learning or practising addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, rounding, estimating, comparing number size…

You can project these onto a screen or have the students work with pen & paper in front of a computer, refreshing the numbers themselves.

## Snow Maths

Submitted by Judith White on Sun, 2010-01-10 22:14

#### Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

Topical practice with L1-L2 number and measure skills (plus a few at E3) and would make a good starter or homework activity. Most questions are based on recent data from the Big Freeze of January 2010. Topics include converting temperatures, converting between metric and Imperial units, proportion, negative nos. and percentrages.
The topical and problem solving nature also makes this very suitable for underpinning L1 and L2 Functional Maths.

#### Level: L1, L2

Two great PPTs with step by step examples using the lattice method (with decimals up to 3 places) and lots of real life practical examples inc. money and measures.
One PPT is for the tutor and can also be used to demonstrate the step by step process. The second PPT is for students and includes blank lattice grids and a series of problems to work on individually or in pairs (could also be printed to make a useful work book).

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

One of our most endearing and popular resources. This excellent investigation for mixed ability groups has inspired many other Skillsworkshop contributors to create related Smartie resources (see below for just a small selection). Covers almost all data handling curriculum elements from Entry 1 to Level 1 along with other elements from N1 (whole numbers) and Measure. Topics covered include counting, estimating, addition, sorting, tallies, bar charts, mean, range and more.
