Maths Skills for Living and Maths Skills for Working are photocopiable teacher resource books designed to help develop essential numeracy skills in students with special learning needs. Both books are intended for students aged 14 to 16, an age when such students may soon be entering the workforce and may also be living independently.

The main purpose of the units is to develop essential numeracy skills, but students will also acquire a better understanding and knowledge of practical living and working skills, such as planning household tasks, nutrition, conversation skills, body language, assertive behaviour, personal safety, days and dates, budgeting and arranging social events.

Maths Skills for Living and Maths Skills for Working can be used

  •   as a stand alone resource for individual students or small groups with special needs

  •   as units of work for whole class activities

They are particularly valuable resources for Life Skills Maths courses but are equally valuable for many students in mainstream Maths classes.
