# Adult Numeracy, Functional Maths, and GCSE Resources

**26 resources**:

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.

My class of adult learners were struggling to associate fractions with real world scenarios so I created this worksheet based on honest situations.

The questions are diverse in difficulty from Entry level 2 to Level 2 making it a good worksheet as a starter or revision.**Editor’s note**

With curriculum mapping and answers

This is an adaptation of Murder at the Grange, which my students have always enjoyed.

I wanted to extend the work on calculating with time, so learners have to use and extend timetables and calculate multi-stage journey times. I also thought it would be good to have some female characters!

Quick addition warm up exercise using one and two digit numbers.

An Excel worksheet with an explanatory introductory PPT (with answers).

A seasonal addition activity for E1-2 learners or could be used as a speedy starter for other levels.

This activity encourages ESOL students:

- To communicate with each other while moving around the classroom,

- To revise Past Simple (questions and answers),

- To practise basic numeracy (subtraction).

With extensive teachers’ notes

Place value game involving dice and calculators. Helps build confidence with place value.

Can be used with all ability levels and easy to adapt.

The classic example of a tally is keeping track of how many cars of each colour go past in the street, but that is rather awkward to do in practice.

Use this presentation to save having to leave the comfort of the classroom! It is a PowerPoint slideshow of cars of various colours, to be projected onto the board. Tell learners to keep a tally of how many cars of each colour appear. Where a car has more than one colour, they should put it under the predominant colour.

E1 learners could focus on simply counting (for instance) all the red cars.

Place value starter based on an Open University course activity.

Useful as a carousel activity at the start of a lesson. Could be adapted for E2 by using 2 boxes rather than three. You may want to laminate the second page.

‘I have…Who has?’ is a fast-paced coin counting game that has been adapted from a game on Super Teacher Worksheets

For the game to work correctly all of the worksheets need to be distributed to your students so some students may get more than one card. This could be used as a way to differentiate with the higher level students being given more cards to work with.
