# Adult Numeracy, Functional Maths, and GCSE Resources

**837 resources**:

I have designed this resource to help learners working at Entry 2 Functional Skills understand the importance of setting and working out calculations correctly. I have also included some stretch questions.

**Editor's note**

Carefully graduated and differentiated workbook covering underpinning skills and simple word problems. Builds up from E2 to 'easy' E3 skills.

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 this ready for my new starts in September. It is surprising how many learners come that get basic things wrong.

As we know FS is all about reading the questions and showing workings out. I always do 5 weeks of no calculators as for some they just do not get the borrowing / carrying over and this is of course important on the non calculator papers now.

There is also an E2-E3 version of this resource.

A resource I designed to help my L1 Functional Maths learners revise and check on areas they needed to work on. Covers ratio, mean, percentages, problem solving, fractions, area , volume and more!

**Editor's note**

Fabulous practice and revision! Fully mapped to the Reformed Functional Maths criteria. **If you are a resource contributor, an answer sheet is available :) **

See our Answer Sheets page for more details.

Name each 2D shape and describe its properties. Two separate worksheets: one for triangles, one for quadrilaterals. For Entry Level, hence angles are not a focus.

For each of the 6 quadrilaterals and 4 triangles, the learner is prompted to answer these questions:
