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!
