Functional Skills Maths - It Could Be You - Smarties Investigation - Whats On The Box

These worksheets have been designed to subtly embed the valuable functional skills learners required to get the most out of education, work and everyday life and to help them function more confidently, effectively and independently. They can be used effectively in Tutorials or Maths sessions.

Each resource has been proven to educate learners on a variety of subjects that will enhance knowledge as well as promoting creativity and individuality.

This Bundle Includes the following 3 Resources


Each has won the lottery and has £1,000,000 to spend.
Task 1 requires learners to decide on how much of their winnings they would gift, if any, to a charity and/or family and friends. This offers an effective platform for discussion around charities, generosity and their individual value of money.
Task two requires the learner to select from a list of items and how they would spend the remaining money. They will write reasons for their choices and share with the rest of the group, which is a great opportunity for speaking and listening and finding common interests within the group.
Task Three asks the learners to complete a shopping list and to include costs and keep a running total of their remaining balance.
The final objective is to get as close to spending 1,000,000 as possible. Calculator use is down to the discretion of the Tutor and the ability of learners.


Learners will work with a Fictional TV guide.
They will study the schedule and then attempt to answer a series of questions related to the information shown. They will then take part in a discussion based on their own favourite TV programme choices. They will create their own Perfect TV schedule, produce questions related to this new timetable and then test their peers.


Learner focus on investigating number and frequency using a tube of Smarties.
Their task is to gather data and produce a bar chart showing their findings.
Learners will then take part in a speaking and listening task that requires them to extract data from other groups allowing them to be able to produce a second chart and accurately present this collective data.
