# Adult Numeracy, Functional Maths, and GCSE Resources

**35 resources**:

These two PowerPoints cover the properties of 2D and 3D shapes (E2-E3) - faces, edges, vertices and line symmetry. This is assessed using a quiz in PPT1. Both PPTs then move on to recognising nets and drawing nets of cubes and cuboids (now found in Level 1 exams). The second PPT can be printed off and used as a workbook. I have also included two links to You tube but you can use your own favourite shape/nets video links if you prefer.

**Editor's note**

An ESOL lesson embedding numeracy, diversity and British values, centred on the Spring Equinox and three festivals which happen around / on this day - Purim, Holi and Shunbun No Hi. Learners collect unfamiliar words on a vocabulary sheet and ask and answer questions to elicit meaning / explanation. There is a powerpoint to introduce the topic, using acronyms eg 7DIAW - Seven Days In A Week to elicit key words, and lead to an explanation of what the Vernal Equinox is and when it is.

Functional skills maths.

Extract information from mileage and distance (network) diagrams. Complete a mileage chart.**Editor’s note**

With worked solutions, pop up help and a final challenge question.

Ideal as an introduction or for revision.

I designed this quiz as revision for my learners.

Trying to disguise the Functional Maths by putting it together with other rounds as a quiz to make it more interesting!

**Editor’s note**

Covers many aspects of E3 and L1 Maths – along with interesting and fun general knowledge questions for all levels.**The answer sheet and curriculum mapping is only available to site contributors. Please see details within the resource**

A game of bingo to practise classroom objects and numbers 1-16. There are 8 different bingo cards and a teacher’s board.

This could be used at the start of term for Pre-entry or Entry 1 learners.

A topical and challenging series of differentiated questions for upper E3 to Level 2. Based on a news report about the May 2015 relief effort and a table of statistics about the world’s largest earthquakes.

A counting game along similar lines to Snakes and Ladders. Learners will learn turn-taking, following instruction & basic counting skills. In addition, they will pick up social and communication skills along the way.

(Print onto A3 – a dice and counters needed)

**Editor’s note**

A PPT version is also included to enable the game to be played on a smartboard.

20 literacy and numeracy questions to warm up the new term! All based on the words HAPPY NEW YEAR (can easily be adapted for other festivals such a Diwali, New Year’s Eve or Ramadan). Covers vowels, consonants, number, ratios, simple substitution, range, mode and more!

Ideal for mixed ability groups (E1-L2). Also provides very good practice in reading instructions carefully.

For higher level groups it could be completed in teams as a speed test.

A seasonal themed maths quiz I created for my E3 students using Carrie Bray’s excellent “45 Christmas Questions” resource as a base. It was designed to provide a fun informal assessment on some of the topics covered in the half-term leading to Christmas.

A Level 1 version is also available.

**Editor’s note**

You can find Carrie’s original resource (which covered E3-L2) under **See also** below.

This is great as a warm-up activity or a bit of end-of-term fun. It is suitable for a mixed ability group of numeracy learners, or indeed literacy or ESOL learners. This quiz tests learners’ knowledge of how old someone has to be in order to do certain things legally, e.g. be a blood donor. It can be used in small group or pair work (which worked well for me) as well as individually.
