This is an example paper covering many aspects of functional skills maths level 2. All in a problem solving context. Great for revision. Very good feedback from colleagues and learners.
Task one: Decide if you should sell your famous picture to the local historian or maybe list it on bobble. Will you make enough money to go on your holiday? Use knowledge of fractions and percentages, metric conversions and imperial conversions, interpret information from a table including being careful of rounding. Draw a table of what was found and draw conclusions.
Task two: Work with area and volume, more converting and interpret a scale drawing. Work out the volume of a cone and see if you have enough space in your garage. There are 2 different versions included the first one has an easier scale drawing and focuses on interpretation rather than drawing the second is almost the same but the section 2 requires drawing of the scale plan. Great for differentiation.
Task three: Work out bonuses for a firm and decide how much each person will earn, choose between averages and say why median is the most appropriate. Make comments about the range and then draw a pie chart. Checking of calculations throughout. 12 pages long really good practice for the exam.
