L1.20 Convert between units of length, weight, capacity, money & time, in the same system

*Subject content [reformed] functional skills: Mathematics* (DfE, Feb 2018):

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/functional-skills-subject-content-mathematics

A resource I designed to help my L1 Functional Maths learners revise and check on areas they needed to work on. Covers ratio, mean, percentages, problem solving, fractions, area , volume and more!

**Editor's note**

Fabulous practice and revision! Fully mapped to the Reformed Functional Maths criteria. **If you are a resource contributor, an answer sheet will be available shortly :) **

This is the resource for L1 learners submitted by Hannah Yates on 2 June 2017, but updated with 2020 figures for JSA (job seekers allowance) and Tax allowance.

Now in SMART notebook format to use whilst screen sharing in a virtual teaching session. Answers are included on the slide following each question (and under the shades on the table on slide 3).

A hastily written resource (I didn’t want to have to wait another 4 years!) on Feb 29th 2020 (but can be used throughout the leap year). Covers Functional Skills (Measures) content descriptors relating to using dates and units of time. Number topics such as estimation and checking, multiplication, division, odd and even numbers, and sequences are also included. There is an emphasis is on using non-calculator written methods to convert between units of time.

A topical resource that requires students to interpret a news infographic and calculate the difference between two times. There is also a second question for Level 2 learners on Speed, Distance, Time. As well as enabling students to practise time calculations it can lead to discussion about this controversial rail project.

**Editor's notes**

Really topical and interesting. With curriculum mapping. No answer sheet.

Large set of questions inspired by the recent (2019) 75th anniversary of the D Day Landings. Covers many aspects of the Reformed FS 2018 content such as bearings, nets, underpinning questions and non-calculator tasks.

**Editor's notes**

A challenging set of L1-2 maths questions that celebrate 50 years since the first Moon landing. Covers new reformed content such as compound measures and 3 figure bearings. Plus an introductory PPT with background information and pop up answers.

**Editor's note**

Fully mapped to the new reformed Functional Maths content. **The answer sheet, which includes detailed working out and marking guidance, is only available to site contributors. Please see details within the resource.**

A starter activity (working on a farm - ppt) and three Functional Skills Maths timeline practice questions.

**Editor's note**

Three very varied questions for Level 1 (planning a dog's daily tablets as prescribed by the vet, running a caravan park and odd jobs around the house).

Fully mapped to the E3 and L1 reformed FS content.

Whilst I designed this resource for Adult Numeracy learners, it has found much use over the years across the maths cohorts I've worked with from pre-GCSE to ESOL, and with GCSE learners.

It is in Excel format - 3 tabs for different activities and the second Excel file is the solution sheet.

The sheets are formatted to print off as A4 landscape to allow learners to have their own copies to work on.

This has always worked well as a starter activity with learners in small groups (or teams) and having a competitive edge.

Level 2 Time revision. A PPT that takes E3-L2 learners step by step through an Edexcel L2 2017 exam question about a diving competition.

The exam question is broken down into three separate tasks, each with extra extension questions.

In addition each task has a suggested time limit which encourages learners to manage their own time in exams. Can also be printed as a worksheet: select slides 4-9 and print 1 slide per page in landscape, fit-to-page mode.

**Editor's note**

A differentiated resource to recap many number & measure skills and to help learners with the skills needed when looking for or applying for a job.

There are 6 questions in both the L1 and L2 version – working out weekly pay, annual salary, tax payable, comparing pay to JSA (Job Seeker’s Allowance), reading/completing a bus timetable and correcting a job acceptance letter (L1 Functional English proof reading).
