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.

There are some links to resources as well, a few lessons include links to PPT, and all resources. Please note that not all suggestions for resources that are written on the scheme include links although if you send me a message I will send you any that you can't find.

Functional Skills L1 Revision Questions and Facts Cards. Matching or Flash cards. 40 cards.

Functional Skills L1 Revision Questions and Facts Cards. Matching or Flash cards. 40 cards.

(1)
Here are some revision cards I made after reviewing the chief examiners report for functional skills maths at level 1. I needed some new revision materials and I know learners often like to make revision cards. Here we have double sided cards which can be used in a few different ways. They are colour coded for number, shape space and measure and statistics. Plus 3 challenge cards in black. Plenty of challenge for even the most able L1 learners. Print the cards off and fold them over so you have flash cards with functional skills type questions on one side and the answers on the back. All answers have the maths facts associated with the questions and then a worked solution so the learners can see how to apply the knowledge to an actual question. Always more useful then just having a fact or an answer and excellent modeling of practice for learners who have up coming exams . Can be given out to take home and as such I have kept the pictures to a minimal to keep the printing costs lower. I have also used these cards cut up into answers and questions and given out for the learners to match them up, like matching cards and they can then photograph the cards when completed for further revision. Finally when learners are completing functional skills practice papers these cards are handy for the learners to refer to. After you have helped them you can collect a relevant card and test them to ensure they have now understood a topic they were struggling with. Instead of just giving them the answer try and solve a similar functional sills style question with them and then see if they can apply it to the paper. Level 2 will also be coming soon. Please see my shop letsgetfunctional for loads of revision activities for functional and GCSE maths. Please note if purchasing for use with GCSE maths these cards cover lots of functional skills topics but they do not cover topics which are not on the functional skills exam papers! For example probability trees, prime numbers and factors are not necessary to be taught and I like to keep my functional skills revision activities relevant to help functional skills learners pass their test without confusing them. The following topics are included: Fractions Percentages Rounding Converting fractions to a percentages Area and Perimeter and Volume Scale Plan Checking Calculations Mean and Range Bar Charts and Tables Converting metric units Practical problems Ratio Challenge questions (x 3)
