Covers  likelihood line, calculating probability (including simplifying fractions) and probability of events using a number line.

Level

L1.30 Understand probability on a scale from 0 (impossible) to 1 (certain) and use probabilities to compare the likelihood of events
L1.31 Use equally likely outcomes to find the probabilities of simple events and express them as fractions
FM L2.27 Express probabilities as fractions, decimals and percentages

Functional Skills level 1. Revision booklet for area and perimeter. Covers rectangles and compound shapes made up of rectangles.

Editor's note

A very useful set of questions with guidance. Lots of underpinning practice is followed by problem solving. Ideal for non-calculator work. Note there is no answer sheet.
