# Adult Numeracy, Functional Maths, and GCSE Resources

**23 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.

**Editor's note**

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).

[img_assist|nid=5161|title=|desc=|link=popup|align=left|width=100|height=70]A notebook file to help support learners with different units of metric measurement and to show how length, weight and capacity follow similar paths. The notebook file includes lots of drag and drop sorting activities and finishes by introducing a separate PDF worksheet that focuses on metric units of length.

Lovely introduction to perimeter, area and volume. The learner can move squares and 3D blocks around to see how area and volume relate to physical squares / cubes.

Please note you must have the ActivInspire interactive whiteboard software installed on your computer in order to open, view and use the flipchart resource.

A free personal edition is available for download at http://support.prometheanplanet.com/

Introduce the topic using the Smart Notebook activity.

8 identical pages, each with a blank number line, a movable arrow to show the position of the number to be rounded and a sentence at the bottom to state what is happening.

Learners can fill in the ends of the number line to see what values are relevant to the question i.e. rounding 23 to the nearest 10 would be either 20 or 30 as an answer. Then they can move the arrow to the position needed, 23, then see which value the number is closest to.

Lovely wall to help students get to grips with equivalents. Covers 1/2, /1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/8, 1/9, 1/10 and 1/12ths. Great for display on an interactive whiteboard and for laminating and using with dry wipe pens, etc.

Forms part of a set of 5 resources linked to an excellent L1-2 lesson plan (that focuses on expressing one number as a fraction of another).

Step by step method for using this very clever, little-known method of working out those tricky times tables from 6 to 9. (The method relies on the user knowing his or her “easier times tables” well so is not suitable for the complete times-tables novice. Very clear slides with lots of illustrated examples.

Step by step method for working out any percentage using easy mental maths methods such as dividing by 10 or 100; doubling and adding up. An example is included and a blank “bubble template “ to users to use with their own percentage problems. A smart notebook version of the template is also included.
