Add and subtract two-digit whole numbers

This is a MS Excel resource that is designed to be a useful resource for producing sheets for starter activities or homework. This also provides a tutor marking sheet. The sheet can be used to differentiate by choosing larger or smaller numbers, and can be addition or subtraction.

**Editor’s note**

Creates printable sheets of 20 problems (plus answer sheets). Clever and useful!

Quick addition warm up exercise using one and two digit numbers.

An Excel worksheet with an explanatory introductory PPT (with answers).

Addition and subtraction task I use in induction sessions with Entry level construction students.

Students need to use the code to work out the ‘value’ of each word. They can then use the answers for the second page.

Normally I give out the first page and use the second as an extension task.

Place value game involving dice and calculators. Helps build confidence with place value.

Adapted from old BBC Skillswise worksheets, this PPT presents different ways of adding and subtracting (numberlines, rounding and splitting).

Addition and subtraction problem solving – ideal for, and fully mapped to, Entry 2 Functional Maths. Includes ideas for covering process skills.

A Functional Maths project for Entry 2/3 students. It requires students to read and interpret information from a hair salon appointment book. To use add, subtract and multiply; calculate stock and cost of services. Students must use the given appointment book throughout the whole project as well as show their working out and check their answers. It is a good introduction to the Functional Skills requirements of using all the information given rather than treating each question as a separate entity.

Fully mapped to the Functional Maths criteria.

Pay Day is a great adaptation of earlier bank balance games (Jane Marsh’s original E3-L1 version and Judith White’s adapted L2 business version both still availalbe – see below).

This version was written specially for Entry Level learners on job related provision and is designed to get learners to think about their own finances: both in terms of what affects their regular income and what they could potentially do to improve their own situation.

Ideal for (and fully mapped to) E2-E3 Functional Maths.

A great way to start a class – provides mental maths practice for E2-E3 but also suitable for higher level learners who can try it out with with large numbers and discuss how it works!

Really helps learners make sense of problem solving and decide which operation to use. Includes a review of vocabulary, gap fill exercises and 11 practical problems that have to be cut out, sorted and solved. Mostly single step problems with 2-digit numbers.
