Functional Skills Level 2 Maths is taught using the following units:

  • Using Numbers – This section of the Functional Skills Level 2 Maths covers everything from whole numbers to decimals, fractions and percentages. You’ll look at how to solve real problems using these skills, including making decisions about purchases, using ratios in recipes at work or working out whether your bills are correct. All of the number skills you look at will be tested by quizzes at the end of each section, and a tutor-marked assignment.
  • Understanding Measure, Shape and Space – This element of the Functional Skills Level 2 Maths course contains a wide range of topics from area and distance to time, speed and temperature. You’ll look at how to solve problems involving time to plan your day-to-day or work life, and how to use your understanding of shape and area to do anything from read a map to plan a house renovation. Our quizzes will check that you’re able to use these skills in different situations while the tutor-marked assignment will identify any revision areas needed.
  • Handling Data – This section looks at working with information. You’ll look at how to summarise and present information that you’ve found, and how to understand information that other people are sharing with you in this part of the Functional Skills Level 2 Maths course. You’ll also look at probability and how likely certain things are to happen. As well as learn how to spot patterns and see how even data and statistics can be biased. Quizzes and a tutor-marked assignment ensures you’ve learnt.

Once you’ve passed all tutor-marked assignments you will be ready to take your mock exam.  The mock exam is marked by your tutor and feedback and any recommended revision areas are given.
