Functional Mathematics Measurement and Scale
Underpins the following coverage & range statements Level 1 solve problems requiring calculation, with common measures, including money, time, length, weight, capacity & temperature convert units of measure in the same system work out areas and perimeters in practical situations Level 2 recognise and use 2D representations of 3D objects find area, perimeter and volume of common shapes use, convert and calculate using metric and, where appropriate, imperial measures Kindly contributed to by Elizabeth Adeyemi, South Thames College.

Functional Mathematics Measurement and Scale
Kindly contributed to by Elizabeth Adeyemi, South Thames College Functional Mathematics Measurement and Scale 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

Functional Mathematics Measurement and Scale for construction students

Answer the following questions (You must show all your workings)
1.Why is it important to be able to measure accurately? (use 2 or 3 complete sentences) (3 marks) 2. A lounge measures 5m by 3m. The owner has contracted you to put up a wall paper border around the room. What length of border will you require? (3 marks) 3.A garden is 5m x 7m. What is the area of the garden? (3 marks)

Answer the following questions (You must show all your workings)
4. You have been asked to put carpet on the stage of a local theatre measuring 45m x 30m. You have a carpet of area 1200 m2. Is the carpet large enough? (3 marks) 5. What is the area of a sheet of metal measuring 58cm and 32 cm? (3 marks) 6. A rectangular rush mat of length 4.5m and width 75cm lies along a corridor. The edges of the mat are strengthened with tape. What length of tape is needed? (3 marks)

Answer the following question (You must show all your workings)
7. A supplier sends out storage bins for electrical materials. Each bin measures 50cm long x 30 cm wide x 50cm high. The bins cannot be stacked inside each other but they can be packed anyway up. How many storage bins can be packed into a large container measuring 3m wide x 3m long x 3m high? (5 marks)

Answer the following questions (you must show all your workings)
8. A small bungalow is L-shaped with basic floor measurements as shown. How many floorboards 2.5 m x 12 cm are needed to cover the floor (assuming no waste) (5 marks) What is the cost if a floorboard is £1.35? (2 mark)

Scales and Maps (You must show all your workings)
9. A house plan is drawn to a scale of 1:100. The lounge on the drawing is 7.5cm long and 5cm wide. What is the: Length of the lounge in metres? (2 marks) Width of the lounge in metres? (2 marks)

Scales and Maps (You must show all your workings)
10. A model is to be made of a new college building which is 120m in length. The suggested scale is 1:250. How long will the model be? (2 marks) 11. An aeroplane has a wingspan of 150 ft. A model of it is made on a scale 1:100. How big is the wingspan on the model? (2 marks) 12. A house was drawn using a scale of 1:100. The main bedroom is 4cm long on the scale plan. How long is the main bedroom? (2 marks)

Answers These are simple short answers for teacher reference
Answers These are simple short answers for teacher reference. However, in order to obtain full marks, learners must show all working out, along with evidence of checking and clear diagrams where appropriate. Any sensible explanation, with examples. 16 m 35 m2 No. The carpet needs to have an area of 1350m2 1856 cm2 10.5 m 6 x 6 x 10 = 360 boxes 1200m floor-boarding = 480 boards. (£648.00) 7.5m long x 5m wide 48 cm 1 ½ ft (18 inches) 4m long
