Buying herbs at the garden centre is based on packets of seeds and covers addition and subtraction of decimals (money), range and mean, and scale drawings. Great for horticulture students or anyone with an interest in gardening.

A couple of mistakes in the model answer

This is a nice resource, but a couple of the answers need correcting.

Q1: £1.99 + £1.89 = £3.88 (not £3.87)

This has a knock-on effect for the following question, which should be:

Q2: £5.00 – £3.88 = £1.12
