Perimeter, Area & Volume L2 revision handout
Submitted by Marc Stewart on 23 September 2018.
This revision aid for L1/L2 (mainly L2) Pearson Edexcel Functional Skills maths gives a side-by-side comparison of perimeter, area and volume, the sort of units that would be involved with each and a worked Functional Skills example of each with a PAV mnemonic for remembering which is which. I have also looked through the last few years of Pearson Edexcel FS for the sorts of questions that require each one.
Note: All images from Pixabay, so do not need crediting.
The three example, worked-through questions are cleverly based on making a pavlova dessert. :). Fully mapped to GCSE Foundation and the new 2018 Functional Skills maths content.

"Used this yesterday. A fab resource but I cut it up and used the examples as a matching task, and then gave out the questions without the solutions. At the end of the session the students were given the full set to take home for reference."
