# Adult Numeracy, Functional Maths, and GCSE Resources

**831 resources**:

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:

Name each 3D object and fill in the gaps about their properties.

For each of the 9 common 3D shapes, the learner is prompted to complete information about:

- its name
- the number of curved and/or flat faces
- the shape of the faces
- the number of vertices (corners)
- the number of edges

**Editor's note**

Answer sheet with detailed Functional Skills Maths mapping is available to contributors only

Name each 2D shape and describe its properties.

For each of the 8 common shapes, the learner is prompted to answer these questions:

This is the resource for L1 learners submitted by Hannah Yates on 2 June 2017, but updated with 2020 figures for JSA (job seekers allowance) and Tax allowance.

Now in SMART notebook format to use whilst screen sharing in a virtual teaching session. Answers are included on the slide following each question (and under the shades on the table on slide 3).

An updated version of 'Numeracy during the Summer' by Judith White (2006).

Numeracy during the summer. Keep your students’ skills going during the summer break with these ideas. One page for Entry Level learners, one for Levels 1/2.

Covers number, measures, shape and space, and data.

This is a Level 2 based Currency Conversion set of 4 questions with resource sheets and answers. All exchange rates resources were obtained from web sites such as The Post Office and the Bank of England.

**Editor's note**

Also provides useful practice in multiply, dividing with decimals (up to 4 decimal places); sensible rounding of answers; and extracting data from tables.

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.

Functional Skills level 1. Revision booklet for area and perimeter. Covers rectangles and compound shapes made up of rectangles.

**Editor's note**

A very useful set of questions with guidance. Lots of underpinning practice is followed by problem solving. Ideal for non-calculator work. **Note there is no answer sheet.**

A hastily written resource (I didn’t want to have to wait another 4 years!) on Feb 29th 2020 (but can be used throughout the leap year). Covers Functional Skills (Measures) content descriptors relating to using dates and units of time. Number topics such as estimation and checking, multiplication, division, odd and even numbers, and sequences are also included. There is an emphasis is on using non-calculator written methods to convert between units of time.

This resource covers all the Functional Skills content descriptors relating to ratio and proportion. It was written with mixed L1-L2 classes in mind. I wanted to experiment with inverse proportion questions (a new topic in Reformed Functional Maths) but wanted to build up to them gradually. The questions are contextualised and problem based, with no underpinning taught, so learners will need an introduction to ratios (or a refresher) beforehand. Ratios, direct and inverse proportion are covered.
