Pre-entry: Numeracy

Numeracy: Functional Maths - measures, shape, money, MSS2/E3.2, MSS1/L1.8, MSS1/L1.9, MSS1/L2.7, MSS2/E3.1, MSS1/L2.8

Level: E3, L1, L2

Resource type: Hands-on / practical activity, Ice breaker

This is a good starter activity to introduce measures, shape and space. It is also useful in dividing classes into small groups.

Using the templates I created I printed them on to card of different colours. I gave the shapes to the learners as they entered the room and told them to find the table with the same shape on it. When they reached the table they found the shape and some questions to answer.

After five minutes I asked for feedback from the learners.

Pre-entry: Numeracy

Numeracy: N2/E3.1, Functional Maths - number, N2/L1.1, N2/E3.2, N2/L1.3, N2/L2.2, N2/L2.1

Level: E3, L1, L2

Resource type: Interactive presentation, Sort or match cards

This is a PowerPoint presentation to use when teaching or revising the basic concepts of fractions and exploring common misconceptions held by students. This presentation also explores the link between fractions, decimals and percentages and the sharing of fraction amounts.
I have used the resource with Functional Skills and Skills for Life classes ranging from Entry 2 to Level 2 students.
