Let's get functional

I am an experienced functional skills and GCSE maths teacher. I teach mainly adults. I also teach apprentices so I have a wide variety of resources from whole class teaching to my workbooks which were originally developed for work with apprentice who come to my classes on a roll on roll off basis - lessons with apprentices are very exam focused trying to prepare them for exams as quickly as possibly. I enjoy a problem solving approach and like to develop resource suitable for adults.
