## Functional Skills Easter Quiz

I designed this quiz as revision for my learners.
Trying to disguise the Functional Maths by putting it together with other rounds as a quiz to make it more interesting!

Editor’s note
Covers many aspects of E3 and L1 Maths – along with interesting and fun general knowledge questions for all levels.
The answer sheet and curriculum mapping is only available to site contributors. Please see details within the resource
