In a world where social media is everywhere and in our lives day and night the impact of this on people as individuals can be a mixture of positivity and negativity. For a lot of people the impact of the promotion of having the ‘perfect body’ whether you are male / female can have a devastating impact for example bullying, mental health and worst case scenario suicide.  So how can we improve / promote a more positive image using social media and support male / fema

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.

Entry 3 revision sheet (addition and subtraction of whole numbers and money)originally designed for a group of dyslexic maths learners, but useful for all Entry 3 students. The focus is on number skills along with language and spelling. Students are encouraged to use a code to show how much help (if any) they need with each question so they can see which skills they need to practise.
The problem solving nature of each question, along with an easy-to-use answer sheet showing clear working out / method, makes this ideal for Functional Mathematics.
