E2-E3 Make a cake Functional Maths revision
Ideas for a revision class on the theme of making a cake. I have included a cake recipe by Delia Smith and some prices of cake ingredients and items for cake decorating.
I first used this activity with a mixed group of young adult learners with a range of learning difficulties. I found it worked better to give them a list of prices rather than asking them to find their own, because then they could focus on the main tasks. However, with a different group or more time, you could ask the learners to research prices on various grocery websites. The cake recipe has a surprising amount of maths vocabulary embedded in it, so some of the learners read it aloud to the group and we discussed the meaning in some detail.
Covers, and fully mapped to, many E2-E3 Functional Maths criteria.
