# AN N2/E3.3

Read, write and understand decimals up to two decimal places in practical contexts (such as: common measures to one decimal place, e.g. 1.5m; money in decimal notation, e.g. £2.37) (a) Understand that the decimal point separates pounds and pence, or m and cm (b) Understand the use of zero as a place holder, e.g. £1.05 is £1 and 5p (c) Understand the use of a leading zero, e.g. 35p = £0.35; 0.5 m = 50 cm (d) Recognise .5 as a half, e.g. 2.5 m as 21/2 m (e) Understand how decimals are spoken, e.g. 3.14 is said as three point one four and not three point fourteen

A detailed lesson plan accompanied by a PPT and a lesson objective checker sheet. The lesson recaps place value and introduces students to decimals and using money in practical situations.

An interesting worksheet that covers both literacy and numeracy. Best used with an interactive food label on the UK Government Eatwell site but the questions can also be answered using the provided printout.

Covers reading comprehension (scanning), extracting information from tables, using decimals and place value.

This spreadsheet is designed to enable students to check their own work; but also to learn about what happens when you add two decimals, or multiply two fractions, and so on.

The spreadsheet consists of the following sheets:

Working out weekly wages and then comparing, ordering and rounding your results. Includes information on the UK minimum wage – which makes an ideal discussion prompt.

Home and Away flat budgeting is a practical task where learners must furnish a flat for someone going off to uni.

Ideal for underpinning E3 Functional Maths and includes full mapping to Entry 3 FM criteria.

A straightforward but very useful conversion sheet. With extra teaching ideas.

An adapted version of a popular worksheet – now tweaked especially for Entry 3 learners (original version for E3-L2 still available – see below). Really helps learners see the connection between these three topics.

Provides quick practice converting from pounds to pence, and vice versa. Lots of questions pop up allowing learners to solve them at their own pace. Great for a warm up before work on entering money correctly using a calculator, etc.

A short but very clever worksheet that relates these three topics and really helps learners see the connection between decimals and fractions.
