Functional skills questions on problems with shapes within shapes such as tiles. These are common questions at Level 1 and 2 in functional skills examinations. There are 3 questions here, but I will update this soon to include a problem on a chap painting a wall (how many tins of paint does he need) and a lady paving her garden (how many slabs does she need).
Print, laminate and cut out the cards as a sorting activity. The numbers on the cards are the men’s 100m sprint records going back to the 1960s, according to Wikipedia. A good activity for teaching decimal numbers.
A3 posters (PDF and Publisher files) of key words. I will update these as the term progresses so the class walls have terms from the topics they are currently studying.
Terms: Integer, decimal, tenth, hundredth, thousandth, power, index .
