Functional Mathematics

Functional maths develops those practical, real life skills required in everyday situations. Problem solving skills, whilst closely related to logical mathematics skills, are different in the way they are developed. Functional skills have been introduced as a result of employers' claims that school leavers did not have the ability to apply their Maths skills in practical situations. The emphasis is on working through problems which you might encounter in your work / home life. Maths tutors can help you identify what Maths is required and select the appropriate Mathematical tools for applying them.

Functional skills have been introduced as a result of employers' claims that school leavers did not have the ability to apply their Maths skills in practical situations. 

They may have reached the level required in order to achieve a grade A*-C in Maths but without being able to use it confidently, effectively and independently, it has little benefit to business.

What is Functional Mathematics

Functional maths develops those practical, real life skills required in everyday situations.  Problem solving skills, whilst closely related to logical mathematics skills, are different in the way they are developed. 

It is not about remembering a set of rules; the emphasis is on working through problems which you might encounter in your work / home life, identifying what Maths is required, selecting appropriate Maths tools and then applying them.

 

Other Information

Functional Maths can be studied as a standalone subject but is now integrated into the new GCSE Maths specification which means that it is an essential skill for all secondary age learners.
