Major update - October 2021. 

A practical and easy way to introduce decimals from Entry Level 2 (1 decimal place) onwards. Written in 2001, I have now updated the Functional Skills mapping and removed the old Adult Numeracy Core Curriculum references. Two new gap-fill charts for E2-E3 and L1-L2 , and a range of new blank charts for whole numbers and decimals of all sizes!  Also useful for:
