Useful PPT for introducing or revising probability. Warm up questions with built in answers followed by several sets of tasks - one based on another Skillsworkshop sheet (Independent Events - see link under "See also"). Covers likelihood line, calculating probability (including simplifying fractions) and probability of events using a number line.

Straightforward probability questions for L2 Functional Maths (dice, playing cards, socks, pens, etc.). Includes useful practice with simplifying fractions.

Plus an interesting extension question.

A practical investigation that can be enjoyed in mixed level classes. There's something for all learners from Entry Level 1 to Level 2.

**Editor's note.** One of my favourite resources that somehow got lost when the site was redeveloped in 2011. Now fully updated to reflect the new 2018 Functional Skills content that come into effect September 2019. Pages 7-8 show detailed FS mapping to content descriptors and problem solving skills.
