The Numeracy for work titles are designed to assist students to recognise and develop everyday numeracy skills.
The Entry level 1 series has been specifically developed to provide tasks that are familiar and accessible to less able students, using real-world settings – a factory, a supermarket and a hotel – to put everyday numeracy skills in context. The activities are of a lower level than those in series 1 and 2, and are ideal for students who require a foundation in basic skills before progressing to higher levels.
In Measurement, shape and space, Entry level 1, students learn about different measures, including size, height, length, width, weight and capacity, how to add and subtract with money, and the vocabulary of time.
The photocopiable work sheets are also included as a PDF on the attached CD-ROM, making them ideal resources for use on interactive whiteboards.
Tasks include: Add money; Choose the right coins and notes to pay for something; Compare and describe the size, length, width, height, weight and capacity of objects; Count forwards and backwards; Count coins; Make lists; Read and understand words related to time; Read and write time using the 12-hour clock; Read numbers up to 10, in numerals and words.
