I taught in a range of schools for many years before moving into FE, where I found creative and imaginative approaches just as rewarding with adults. Most of my resources are concerned with giving control to the learner, through a range of methods. Some are great for just giving them experience of examination questions, and the chance to discuss these with other learners. I now concentrate on spreading the range of creations from UK KS1 to KS4, and across the Common Standards.

Functional Skills Maths - Multiple Choice Quizzes

Functional Skills A set of multiple choice quizzes that I created for Functional Skills Mathematics, covering the mathematical topics as revision for functionality. Equally they can be used at any level for starters, fillers, or just a bit of fun. (All images are mine, I think, and mostly taken by me.)

Warm up worksheet that asks the learners to find common multiples and common factors, through word questions. Colourful presentation covering the definitions of a fraction, and why the numerator has to be the same. One example, and then a small selection for the learners to find the lowest common denominator. Finally a worksheet for the learners to try out, or revise, these new skills. Does not include addition of mixed numbers - all simple results less than one. All worksheets in Word and PDF, and all answers included! Year 6 specs say: 'use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination add and subtract fractions with different denominators'
