Maths in Practice is a book of A4 photocopy masters containing 40 pages of exercises on the maths needed in daily life. Some are based on worksheets which first appeared in News Worksheet, now revised and updated. Others are published here for the first time.
The skills and topics covered include: estimation and reckoning-up; charts, tables and graphs; averages; probability; sequences; the language of maths; sales offers; supermarket sizes; sport; the cost of holidays and consumer goods; maths ‘crosswords’.
Maths in Practice covers many of the elements specified in Entry Level and Level 1 of the Adult Numeracy Core Curriculum and the National Qualifications Framework. The worksheets will also prove useful for the equivalent stages in the National Curriculum (Maths). Some sheets span more than one level and, for Entry Level work in particular, it may be necessary to select some questions and omit others on a given sheet. Detailed answers are provided where needed and an index gives more detailed guidance as to which sheets include practice in particular skills.
