Live the Lotto Dream v4 (mobile phone shop)
A great project that covers many Functional maths and Functional English criteria. You win the lottery, buy a mobile phone shop and have to furnish it from catalogues and/or Internet sites.
Learn about budgeting, displaying data, working with areas and floor plans, bank statements, rounding, estimating, and much more. Everything must be written up as a comprehensive report with a clear conclusion (a great guidance page on report writing is included in the resource).
This is the third adaptation of this skillsworkshop classic – originally submitted by Dave Walkden in 2006. See below for previous versions. This version was written for a year 10 maths group in order to give them some experience in ‘real world’ maths before they headed out on work experience. It is ideal for embedding Functional Maths and English in many vocational settings.
