London Marathon is a multi-level graduated Functional Maths workbook for Entry Level 1 to Level 2. A front page overview allows the teacher or learner to decide which levels and topics to work on. The emphasis throughout is on problem solving and showing working out. The workbook uses information from the 2022 London Marathon web page and event guide.

Covers all reformed Functional Skills content descriptors relating to position and direction (from E1 to L1). Written with mixed-level classes in mind. Positional vocabulary; cardinal and intercardinal compass points; turns (e.g. quarter turns) and bearings are all covered in this set of graduated HS2 (high speed railway) themed problems. Problems are interspersed with context-free underpinning questions, examples and tips.

Angles have far greater prominence in the reformed Functional Maths content (for example 3 figure bearings are assessed at Level 1). An introductory PPT and accompanying straightforward but very useful worksheet develop underpinning skills in measuring and naming angles. Includes a reference box on page 1 and a list of 'angle' vocabulary on page 4 (please note much of this vocabulary is not assessed in Functional Mathematics but is included for general interest).

Large set of questions inspired by the recent (2019) 75th anniversary of the D Day Landings. Covers many aspects of the Reformed FS 2018 content such as bearings, nets, underpinning questions and non-calculator tasks.

**Editor's notes**

A challenging set of L1-2 maths questions that celebrate 50 years since the first Moon landing. Covers new reformed content such as compound measures and 3 figure bearings. Plus an introductory PPT with background information and pop up answers.
