Harry Potter in numbers
Using a newspaper article to interpret numbers and use decimals, fractions and percentages. This resource introduces the learner to billions, but the majority of questions and process are aimed at Level 1 (with some suitable for Entry 3).
Questions cover writing numbers in words and figures, place value, equivalent fractions, dates, measures, rounding, etc. Makes useful revision material.
The Level 2 extension questions involve creating a chart and converting a currency – all with a Harry Potter theme.
As the questions are based on a newspaper there is some interesting use of language in numeracy which could also be a discussion point for literacy and ESOL learners.
