A game for 2 players to help with multiplying decimals with or without a calculator.
Learners take turns to choose 2 numbers to multiply, then cover up the answer on the grid. This continues until a player has 4 counters/initials in a row(diagonally, horizontally or vertically).
Prompts can be used for learners to pick a target answer and to try to work out which 2 decimals are going to give that answer. Editor’s note
Laminate for re-use. A great game.
A differentiated resource to recap many number & measure skills and to help learners with the skills needed when looking for or applying for a job.
There are 6 questions in both the L1 and L2 version – working out weekly pay, annual salary, tax payable, comparing pay to JSA (Job Seeker’s Allowance), reading/completing a bus timetable and correcting a job acceptance letter (L1 Functional English proof reading).

Three fabulous PPTs – great for St George’s day but could be used year round.
The full length one (22 slides) was written for a 2.5 hour observed session and has in-depth coverage of multiplying decimals; area of rectangles, triangles, circles and compound shapes; substitution; and a general warm-up quiz.
There are alternative shortened versions (some activities are slightly different too) for a 1 hr L1 lesson (area of rectangles) and a 1.5 hr L1-2 Lesson (no triangles).
Stresses the importance of decimal skills (+,-,x,/) in three care jobs (children’s nursery, occupational therapy, midwifery) with great, real-life example questions. Also ideal (and mapped to) L2 Functional Maths.
A very topical resource originally written for a group of older returning learners to help them see how maths skills can help in everyday life. Covers decimal place value and ordering; subtracting and multiplying decimals (inc. x10); and finding the range.
