Maths Quiz 2019

(1)
A Maths quiz useful for the end of term, or just when you want to do something fun. Each category has 2 levels: an easy-ish first level and a more challenging second one, so you can adapt to different ages and abilities. There are several categories, with 5 questions in each. The category slide has hyperlinks to the first question of each category. The questions test knowledge and Maths skills. There is one Rotherham specific question (where I teach) and some 2019 specific ones. The answers for the latter will need to be adjusted for different years.

Applying multiplication and division, area and volume - FULL LESSON

(0)
This lesson links multiplication to area and volume, using the ‘squared paper’ method of multiplication. It also introduces the ‘squared paper’ method of division (given a sum such as 12/4, on squared paper students outline the number they have to divide, and count out blocks of the number they are dividing by; the number of blocks is the answer). They then apply these skills to the real-life problem of decorating a room. This is one of a bundle of 11 Functional Skills Maths Number lessons I have on TES. All lessons are mapped to the Adult Numeracy Core Curriculum. They cover Entry 1-Entry 3, with some Level 1 skills. I had few L1 students when I planned these, and taught the parts of the L1 curriculum not covered by these lessons as extension tasks with individual students. You can get individual worksheets and powerpoints on my page for free. Alternatively, you can buy the bundle of all 11 lessons (with worksheets and powerpoints) for only £10.
