A fabulous 40 question practice paper written to provide challenging extra practice after a group of learners participated in a very difficult L1 numeracy test (the levels of the national test certainly do seem to be erratic at times, and definitely harder than when it was first introduced). Unlike the national test, the questions in this test are not multiple choice – making it equally suitable for initial assessment in both L1 and L2 classes. Covers all areas of the curriculum.

Written for ESOL students with good basic numeracy skills who were taking the test without attending numeracy classes. However these notes are brilliant for any Level 1 numeracy student (who should also refer to the E3 tips below).

16 piece triangular jigsaw where you must match the facts and figures to the correct definitions / answers. Makes a great revision activity – covers all area of the curriculum. Andrea suggests that as the print is quite small on the standard sized puzzle, tutors might find it helpful to print out the larger version of the puzzle (select Output – large, i.e. three pieces per A4 sheet).
