Skillsworkshop Classic Maths

Classic Skillsworkshop Maths logo

A vintage skillsworkshop resource (usually at least 10 years old) that has remained popular.

All 'Classics" have been updated to reflect the latest Reformed Functional Skills Content. Where appropriate, content has also been changed/updated and a separate PDF answer sheets provided.

 

I made this resource to check prior learning of a group I took over from another lecturer. It could work well for assessment, revision or as an extension task.
