Written as a contextualised resource for Leisure, Travel and Tourism students but should appeal to all club-loving teenagers. Makes a good quick practice / revision / reminder exercise.
Aimed only at Level 1 students with definitions of both the mean average and range at the top, I find that these students don’t find the maths particularly difficult; they just have a problem remembering the definitions.

I created this resource as practice in data handling for a Level 1 Functional Maths group and it covers skills from Entry 3 to Level 2. It includes creating tallies and charts, using a distance chart, calculating average and range, and working with money. It is fully mapped to the Functional Maths criteria and includes an answer sheet.

My students are 16-18, and have a limited knowledge of geography, so I included an outline map of the UK (not included in the resource) and got them to use a road map to find and mark the cities and towns that are on the distance chart.
