Numeracy: General numeracy / maths

General: Exam tips and help

Level: L1

Resource type: Handout or guide, Revision material

Written as a resource for distance learners with good reading skills who were challenged by some of the questions in the Level 1 Numeracy test.

I wanted to give them different methods of working out multiplication and division questions in particular – emphasising that multiplication is the reverse of division, and that multiplication is the same as repeated addition. The idea of division as repeated subtraction is also introduced.

Rounding, percentages and ratios are covered. Perimeter, area and volume are listed under Measure, Shape and Space along with metric measures. Average and Range are also included.

Editor’s note: also suitable for many aspects of Functional Maths revision. I’ve added a mapping chart.

Physical format: 
2 pages plus Functional Skills mapping
