#### Context: Motor vehicles & Transport, Sport

#### Level: L1, L2

#### Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

A set of Formula 1 scenarios based on the four rules of mathematics and using formulae expressed in words and/or numbers. This resource tests students’ ability to use formulae to solve problems based on a motor racing car travelling on a race track. Some of the scenarios test the students ability to convert units to get a sensible answer. I encourage my students to estimate the answers before attempting for real! Some do, some don’t …

**Editor’s note**

With Functional Maths mapping and sample answers.

#### Context: Construction Carpentry Plumbing

#### Level: L2

#### Resource type: Interactive presentation

This PowerPoint was used to introduce Pythagoras’ Theorem to Functional Skills college students whose main course work is to do with the Building Trades (Carpenters, Electricians). The last 4 slides therefore deal with using Pythagoras’ theorem to calculate the length of roof rafters.

**Editor’s note**

I realise that using Pythagoras’ theorem is beyond the scope of L2 Functional Maths Exams but this is a very useful PPT due to the vocational questions. Would also be useful for GCSE Maths.

#### Resource type: Informative presentation, Sort or match cards, Worksheet or assignment

#### Level: L2

A power point and interactive cards to introduce the students to reversing calculations / formulas.

The animated PPT demonstrates the basics of how to rearrange formulae and use reverse calculations to self check answers.

The cards with symbols, can be used to physically rearrange the formula showing the moves of each symbol. These allow the tutor to spend some time talking the less able students through the process. Students can then use the card to complete a short worksheet.

#### Resource type: Handout or guide, Poster

#### Level: L2

A set of two posters for the classroom – also useful as handouts.

**Formulae** (L2)

I asked a group of my learners to come up with a short and snappy set of rules for using formulae. One of the group wrote the rules in the form of a poster, from which I developed this poster.

Covers general rules for using formulae such as order of operations (BIDMAS). Plus a separate page specifically for using a formula to find the area of a circle.

#### Free tags: St George's Day

#### Level: L1, L2

#### Resource type: Interactive presentation

Three fabulous PPTs – great for St George’s day but could be used year round.

The full length one (22 slides) was written for a 2.5 hour observed session and has in-depth coverage of multiplying decimals; area of rectangles, triangles, circles and compound shapes; substitution; and a general warm-up quiz.

There are alternative shortened versions (some activities are slightly different too) for a 1 hr L1 lesson (area of rectangles) and a 1.5 hr L1-2 Lesson (no triangles).
