Odd even picture reveal activity

Submitted by Marc Stewart on Thu, 2017-11-16 20:40

Numeracy: Functional Maths - number, N1/E2.1, N1/E2.2, N1/E3.1

Resource type: Hands-on / practical activity, ICT task sheet, Resource generator, Worksheet or assignment

Level: E2, E3

This is an Excel file with a basic odd/even activity. I took inspiration from Jean Thomas’ “Reveal the hidden shapes!” activity from 2005.

Numeracy: Functional Maths - number

Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

Level: L1, L2

Two separate resources: one for L1, one for L2.
I developed these because of my frustration that learners (many that have already been put through constant re-sits) are expected to tackle Functional Skills exam papers and multi-step problems before they have been taught or have mastered the underpinning knowledge and skills needed to succeed.

Many aspects of place value are covered including reading & writing large numbers, ordering numbers, negative numbers, rounding, and the correct use of < and > symbols.

Context: Leisure Travel Tourism

Level: L1, L2

Resource type: Worksheet or assignment, Writing prompts

A series of tasks designed to help learners improve their sentences and hence their writing style. These tasks assume no previous knowledge of complex sentences or subordinating conjunctions.

(See my related Entry Level ‘Halloween Compound Sentences’ resource for more on compound sentences and coordinating conjunctions).

Aimed at L1-2 students but parts could be useful at Entry 3.
