A short workbook I created to 'test the maths water' before teaching maths to a group of adult and young ESOL learners. It covers almost everything in the Entry Level 1 curriculum with exam style tasks/ questions linked to C&G Functional Skills Maths assessments.

I usually use it with groups as a gentle introduction to the idea of maths and it forms a good diagnostic for the things they need to learn. It also lets me see how motivated they are to study maths!

**Editor's notes**

A revision task for Entry 1 and Entry 2 Functional Maths, based on the City and Guilds assessments. Includes comparing weight and prices, calculations with money, and 3D shapes.

There is a 'running' version and a worksheet. The running version is designed to be cut into strips. Students work in pairs or small groups on question 1 and one person 'runs' to the teacher when they have written the answer on their strip. If the answer is correct, the teacher gives the next question to take back to their partner. This can get competitive!

Pat and Mitch decide to build a mini wildlife pond from an old sink. This involves digging, gathering and arranging suitable items, a trip to the aquatic centre to buy water plants, and then sitting back and observing the fruit of their labours :)

Name each 3D object and fill in the gaps about their properties.

For each of the 9 common 3D shapes, the learner is prompted to complete information about:

- its name
- the number of curved and/or flat faces
- the shape of the faces
- the number of vertices (corners)
- the number of edges

Answer sheet with detailed Functional Skills Maths mapping is available to contributors only

Name each 2D shape and describe its properties.

For each of the 8 common shapes, the learner is prompted to answer these questions:

Entry Level 1-2 Maths questions based on a shopping poster from the BBC 2018 Children in Need appeal but can be used at any time. Main focus is positional vocabulary, money and basic number (+, -. x, /) skills
