What chance do you have of winning your bet now? 2/40 = 1/20 Level 1 and Level 2 Adult Numeracy This assignment covers many aspects of L1 and L2 adult numeracy (whole numbers; decimals, fractions and percentages; common measures and data handling). Strictly, if being used for L1 and L2 numeracy exam practice, calculators should not be permitted but tutors should use their judgment as some questions are rather tedious if done by hand! Functional Maths This resource is also ideal for underpinning many Functional Maths coverage and range statements at Levels 1 and 2 (see page 10). However, in Functional Mathematics exams it is the process skills that are assessed (again, see page 10); these are key to successful Functional Maths teaching and must always be developed and stressed during teaching. If using this assignment for Functional Maths practice calculators should be allowed and students should be encouraged to not only show all their working out but to also show evidence that they have checked their answers.

10 Answers Teaching notes Functional Maths mapping Functional Skills criteria highlighting indicates main skills covered in this resource, although these will vary with the student group and how the resource is used by the teacher. In Functional Mathematics the process skills must be developed and stressed during teaching (see page 9). Representing selecting the mathematics and information to model a situation understand routine and non-routine problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts and situations identify the situation or problems and identify the mathematical methods needed to solve them choose from a range of mathematics to find solutions understand practical problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts and situations, some of which are nonroutine identify and obtain necessary information to tackle the problem select mathematics in an organised way to find solutions Process Skills (all levels) Analysing processing and using mathematics Skill Standards (Level 2) apply a range of mathematics to find solutions use appropriate checking procedures and evaluate their effectiveness at each stage Skill Standards (Level 1) apply mathematics in an organised way to find solutions to straightforward practical problems for different purposes use appropriate checking procedures at each stage Interpreting interpreting and communicating the results of the analysis interpret and communicate solutions to multistage practical problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts and situations draw conclusions and provide mathematical justifications interpret and communicate solutions to practical problems, drawing simple conclusions and giving explanations Coverage and Range statements (indicative only) Coverage and range statements provide an indication of the type of mathematical content candidates are expected to apply in functional contexts. Relevant content can also be drawn from equivalent National Curriculum levels & Adult Numeracy standards. Level 2 understand and use positive and negative numbers of any size in practical contexts carry out calculations with numbers of any size in practical contexts, to a given number of decimal places understand, use and calculate ratio and proportion, including problems involving scale understand and use equivalences between fractions, decimals and percentages understand and use simple formulae and equations involving one or two operations understand and use whole numbers and understand negative numbers in practical contexts add, subtract, multiply and divide whole numbers using a range of strategies understand and use equivalences between common fractions, decimals and percentages add and subtract decimals up to two decimal places solve simple problems involving ratio, where one number is a multiple of the other use simple formulae expressed in words for one- or two-step operations Level 1 recognise and use 2D representations of 3D objects find area, perimeter and volume of common shapes use, convert and calculate using metric and, where appropriate, imperial measures collect and represent discrete and continuous data, using information and communication technology (ICT) where appropriate use and interpret statistical measures, tables and diagrams, for discrete and continuous data, using ICT where appropriate. use statistical methods to investigate situations use probability to assess the likelihood of an outcome use data to assess the likelihood of an outcome solve problems requiring calculation, with common measures, including money, time, length, weight, capacity & temperature convert units of measure in the same system work out areas and perimeters in practical situations construct geometric diagrams, models and shapes extract and interpret information from tables, diagrams, charts and graphs collect and record discrete data and organise and represent information in different ways find mean and range References: Ofqual (2009), Functional Skills criteria for Mathematics: Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3, level 1 and level 2.
