Functional Maths

Resources (covering a wide range of number, measure and data topics) particularly suitable for teaching and underpinning Functional Mathematics.

Live the lotto dream is a fabulous project that covers many E3/L1 literacy and numeracy elements. You win the lottery, buy a flat and have to furnish it from the Argos catalogue! Learn about budgeting, working with areas and floor plans, bank statements, rounding, estimating, and much more. Everything must be written up as a comprehensive report with a clear conclusion (a great guidance page on report writing is included in the resource).

Entry 3 revision sheet (addition and subtraction of whole numbers and money)originally designed for a group of dyslexic maths learners, but useful for all Entry 3 students. The focus is on number skills along with language and spelling. Students are encouraged to use a code to show how much help (if any) they need with each question so they can see which skills they need to practise.
The problem solving nature of each question, along with an easy-to-use answer sheet showing clear working out / method, makes this ideal for Functional Mathematics.
