Functional Maths Money

Whether you teach maths with a separate functional skills qualification, or whether it's embedded in the maths specification you teach, it's clear that pupils need more opportunities to work on their problem solving skills, communicate their mathematical thinking, complete extended tasks or group activities, and also consider maths in context. I have found it difficult to find activities that have the right balance of problem solving, mathematical theory and real life relevance. Therefore this list pulls together resources that can be used either in the maths classroom or if teaching functional skills.
