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.

You have lots of practice at problem solving and working out costs etc. All the answered are included and each pack is appropriately differentiated.

This pack contains 6 tasks to help develop problem solving and also challenge misconceptions. Very little numeracy skills are needed to perfect for start of term team building. Can be used as a booklet or print A3 for a great carousel in the first few weeks of term. Suggested answers are now included!
• Odd One out – there is more than one right answer which some learners find difficult to accept.
• Spot the mistake – 5 problems with mistakes, includes writing money on a calculator, changing units, square M, rounding errors.

Included in this pack is a lesson plan. fact cards fro countries around the world to use in a variety of ways comparing the numbers. A booklet with accompanying questions including a crossword. An activity on house prices and a large numbers in the news handout with questions. More than enough to challenge even most able learners in functional skills maths and will take at least 2 hours to complete. A maths dictionary is also included.
Please see my other resources for lots of functional skills lessons differentiated to level 1 and level 2 including all resources for £3.

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)
