Conversion quiz Remember! 100p = £1 1p = £0.01
Pounds to Pence Conversion quiz Remember! 100p = £1 1p = £0.01 Slides taken from- Kindly contributed to the Adult Basic Skills Resource Centre Jennifer Williamson, Skills for Life Tutor, Juniper Training Ltd. Wolverhampton Jennifer says: pounds to pence provides quick practice converting from £ to pence and vice versa. I use it as a warm up to money and calculator skills. Adult Numeracy links: MSS1/E3.1 Add and subtract sums of money using decimal notation (a) know how to align decimal points and figures in column addition and subtraction (b) know how to enter sums of money in a calculator N2/E3.3 Read, write and understand decimals up to two decimal places in practical contexts (such as: common measures to one decimal place, e.g. 1.5 m; money in decimal notation, e.g. £2.37)

Convert the following amounts from pounds to pence:
£5 = 500p £2.50 = 250p £3.75 = 375p £1.99 = 199p £0.70 = 70p £6.07 = 607p £89.65= 8965p £22.09 = 2209p £46.33 = 4633p Slides taken from- Kindly contributed to the Adult Basic Skills Resource Centre Jennifer Williamson, Skills for Life Tutor, Juniper Training Ltd.

SUBTRACTION LINE UP DECIMAL POINTS EXACTLY Then do the subtraction 234 – 3.56

When are you going to use these skills?
Personal finances: Budgeting Bank account Job: Cash floats / tills Ordering parts / expenses

Activity Today you are on the reception desk, to get experience in this area of your new work place. You will have to deal with money and customers... Use the hand-out to complete the jobs. Good luck! You have 20 minutes. Use in connection with worksheet.

To sum up... Re-visit your ‘Subject knowledge checker’ from the start of the lesson. Lesson Objectives Difficult Not sure Think so OK To discuss the use of a decimals in daily life To demonstrate + & - skills with decimals Identify how to multiply decimals by 10,100 using mental arithmetic To improve simple maths by using money Revisit knowledge checker Summary of session and review.
