# Adult Numeracy, Functional Maths, and GCSE Resources

**109 resources**:

These two PowerPoints cover the properties of 2D and 3D shapes (E2-E3) - faces, edges, vertices and line symmetry. This is assessed using a quiz in PPT1. Both PPTs then move on to recognising nets and drawing nets of cubes and cuboids (now found in Level 1 exams). The second PPT can be printed off and used as a workbook. I have also included two links to You tube but you can use your own favourite shape/nets video links if you prefer.

I designed this resource to help learners at Entry Level 3 Functional Maths understand the importance of setting out and working out multiplication calculations. I've also included some stretch questions.

**Editor's note**

A graduated and differentiated workbook covering underpinning skills and simple word problems. Focus is on multiplying 2 3 and 4 digit numbers by a single digit. For Entry Level 2 learners use Nicky's **E2 Multiplication** (to find this look under** See also** or visit Nicky's profile page).

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.

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.

For further practice see the E3-L1 version of this resource.

Whilst I designed this resource for Adult Numeracy learners, it has found much use over the years across the maths cohorts I've worked with from pre-GCSE to ESOL, and with GCSE learners.

It is in Excel format - 3 tabs for different activities and the second Excel file is the solution sheet.

The sheets are formatted to print off as A4 landscape to allow learners to have their own copies to work on.

This has always worked well as a starter activity with learners in small groups (or teams) and having a competitive edge.

An ESOL lesson embedding numeracy, diversity and British values, centred on the Spring Equinox and three festivals which happen around / on this day - Purim, Holi and Shunbun No Hi. Learners collect unfamiliar words on a vocabulary sheet and ask and answer questions to elicit meaning / explanation. There is a powerpoint to introduce the topic, using acronyms eg 7DIAW - Seven Days In A Week to elicit key words, and lead to an explanation of what the Vernal Equinox is and when it is.

Level 2 Time revision. A PPT that takes E3-L2 learners step by step through an Edexcel L2 2017 exam question about a diving competition.

The exam question is broken down into three separate tasks, each with extra extension questions.

In addition each task has a suggested time limit which encourages learners to manage their own time in exams. Can also be printed as a worksheet: select slides 4-9 and print 1 slide per page in landscape, fit-to-page mode.

**Editor's note**

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

Functional skills maths.

Extract information from mileage and distance (network) diagrams. Complete a mileage chart.**Editor’s note**

With worked solutions, pop up help and a final challenge question.

Ideal as an introduction or for revision.
