##### Presentation Transcript

1. Functional MathematicsProblem solving with decimals Underpins the following coverage & range statements Level 1 • add and subtract decimals up to two decimal places • convert units of measure in the same system • solve problems requiring calculation, with common measures, including money, time, length, weight, capacity & temperature • extract and interpret information from tables, diagrams, charts and graphs • understand and use equivalences between common fractions, decimals and percentages Level 2 • carry out calculations with numbers of any size in practical contexts, to a given number of decimal places Kindly contributed to www.skillsworkshop.org by Elizabeth Adeyemi, South Thames College

2. Kindly contributed to www.skillsworkshop.org by Elizabeth Adeyemi, South Thames College Functional MathematicsProblem solving with decimals When using this resource teachers should assess and reinforce the L1-2 skill standards: Level 1 • understand practical problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts and situations, some of which are non-routine • apply mathematics in an organised way to find solutions to straightforward practical problems for different purposes interpret and communicate solutions to practical problems, drawing simple conclusions and giving explanations • identify and obtain necessary information to tackle the problem • use appropriate checking procedures at each stage • select mathematics in an organised way to find solutions Level 2 • understand routine and non-routine problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts and situations • apply a range of mathematics to find solutions • interpret and communicate solutions to multistage practical problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts and situations • identify the situation or problems and identify the mathematical methods needed to solve them • use appropriate checking procedures and evaluate their effectiveness at each stage • draw conclusions and provide mathematical justifications • choose from a range of mathematics to find solutions

3. Functional MathematicsProblem solving with decimals Aims: Use efficient and accurate methods to solve contextualised problems involving money/decimals Learning outcomes: By the end of the lesson ALL learners will be able to: Read, write and understand decimals up to two decimal places in practical contexts. (as: common measures to one decimal place, e.g. 1.5m; money in decimal notation) carry out simple calculations involving money. identify the correct mathematical procedures needed to solve problems Some learners will be able to (differentiated outcomes for more able learners within the group): carryout the calculations efficiently and accurately. Calculate cost of credit on loans and hire purchase.

4. Money Problem SolvingShow all your working out – you can use a calculator 1) 4030 people go to a football match. Each ticket costs £4.25. What is the total cost of all the tickets? 2) A person earns £345 per month. What is his annual salary? 3) You pay £558.72 in tax per year. How much do you pay per month in tax?

5. Money Problem SolvingShow all your working out – you can use a calculator 4) Arnis pays £58.50 per week in rent. How much does he pay per year? 5) Sale items were advertised at half price of normal prices. What did it cost in a sale to buy a blouse, skirt and jeans if the normal prices were £17.60, £19.40 and £14.40 respectively?

6. Choosing a savings account TASK 1 What things would you take into consideration when opening an account? Rate the following in order of importance to you: 1 most important to 12 least important • Friendly staff • Close to where you live • Good rates of interest • Recommended by a friend • Has cash machines • Low bank charges • Nice carpets • A well known company • Good adverts • Informative staff • Easy to understand literature • Short queues

7. Metric measuresShow all your working out – you can use a calculator • Convert the following to centimetres: (a) 5 metres (b) 30 millimetres (c) 270 millimetres • Convert the following to millimetres: (a) 21cm (b) 315 cm (c) 4.6 cm • Convert the following to metres: (a) 500cm (b) 3km • You are fitting kitchen cabinets. The gap for the last cabinet is 80cm. The sizes of the cabinets are shown in millimetres. Which size should you look for? • Thirty children in a class each need 20 cm of string for a project. How many metres of string will they use all together?
