FM E2.5 Add and subtract two-digit numbers

A good way for learners to understand the importance of using reverse calculations to check an answer to a previous question. These check questions are appearing more and more in functional skills exams. I hope you find it as useful as I and my learners do.

**Editor's note**

A resource created for an adult learner to develop confidence in handling and working with money in everyday contexts.

**Editor's note**

A really functional resource based on a supermarket receipt. Covers many E2 and E3 content descriptors (each question is mapped). If you are a Skillsworkshop resource contributor an answer sheet will be available shortly.

I've just designed these ready for my new starts in September. It is surprising how many learners come that get the simplest things wrong.

A set of Entry Level tasks - all based on a vending machine. The main focus is money but positional vocabulary is also covered. Skills covered include: recognising letters and numbers for items in a vending machine, identifying coins to pay with, working out change from £1, checking answers, rounding and estimating, distinguishing between right and left.

**Editor's note**

A delightfully functional resource. With teaching notes. Fully mapped to the Reformed Functional Skills content.

This is a MS Excel resource that is designed to be a useful resource for producing sheets for starter activities or homework. This also provides a tutor marking sheet. The sheet can be used to differentiate by choosing larger or smaller numbers, and can be addition or subtraction.

**Editor’s note**

Creates printable sheets of 20 problems (plus answer sheets). Clever and useful!
