# Adult Numeracy, Functional Maths, and GCSE Resources

**794 resources**:

A series of questions that asks the learner to read a start time in words, draw this time on an analogue clock face then calculate a second time from a question and draw this on a second clock face.

I am using this with an E2 learner who wants to improve her time telling skills and it has presented a good challenge for her.

I have found that although some learners are able to calculate averages, they often struggle to interpret the results. This resource has been designed with this in mind.

With answers, plus detailed curriculum mapping for both GCSE and Functional Maths

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 a MS Excel resource that is designed to be a useful resource for producing sheets for starter activities or homework. This also provides a tutor marking sheet. The sheet can be used to differentiate by choosing larger or smaller numbers, and can be addition or subtraction.

**Editor’s note**

Creates printable sheets of 20 problems (plus answer sheets). Clever and useful!

A resource for maths to allow students to calculate the cost of a home made pizza and compare to a takeaway / store bought pizza. Considering profits and recipe scale.

2 different levels of sheet Foundation and higher that can be printed back to back with a design ideas sheet to give the costing some context or used in a catering / life skills lesson for cross curricular.

**Editor’s note**

PPT format but prints as 3 x A4 sized editable worksheets.

This is an Excel file with a basic odd/even activity. I took inspiration from Jean Thomas’ “Reveal the hidden shapes!” activity from 2005.

With this activity, the tutor can design a picture (or one learner can design a picture for another learner) and it produces a printable sheet. The learner then shades all the odd numbers on the sheet in one colour, and all the even numbers in a different colour – revealing a picture or a message.

There are no macros, so cross-compatibility with Excel shouldn’t be a problem.

Two separate resources: one for L1, one for L2.

I developed these because of my frustration that learners (many that have already been put through constant re-sits) are expected to tackle Functional Skills exam papers and multi-step problems before they have been taught or have mastered the underpinning knowledge and skills needed to succeed.

Many aspects of place value are covered including reading & writing large numbers, ordering numbers, negative numbers, rounding, and the correct use of < and > symbols. A glossary is included.

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.

A set of robust questions covering plans / scale drawings, calculating area, finding the best prices, percentages, ratios and much more. Mapped to the L1 and L2 Functional Maths criteria. 12 questions spread across 4 tasks: Loft Conversion, Social Club, College Canteen and Living Room.

A set of Formula 1 scenarios based on the four rules of mathematics and using formulae expressed in words and/or numbers. This resource tests students’ ability to use formulae to solve problems based on a motor racing car travelling on a race track. Some of the scenarios test the students ability to convert units to get a sensible answer. I encourage my students to estimate the answers before attempting for real! Some do, some don’t …
