Functional Skills Maths Level 1 is aimed at helping you pass this exam with ease. In the actual test, although the use of calculators is allowed, it is useful to do simple sums with confidence without using calculators. In addition to basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division you are expected to be familiar with fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios and proportions in everyday context. Everyday problems often involve being able to estimate as well as being able to work with function machines and simple formulas. Also it is useful to be able to convert from one type of currency to another when you go on holiday! In addition, basic Data Interpretation or Statistics is useful to make sense of data that is presented numerically or visually in a workplace or in newspaper articles. There are also chapters on basic shapes and spaces since you also need to know how to work out lengths around a shape (perimeters), areas and volumes of basic shapes as well as be familiar with plans and drawing nets! Whichever Exam Board you are working for you will find this book useful for Functional Mathematics up to level 1 and prepare you for Functional Mathematics Level 2. These tests may be taken online and in the actual tests you can either pass or fail.

This book offers friendly guidance on how to work with adult learners to develop their numeracy and mathematics skills. It brings together current research and practice on teaching adult numeracy into one handy volume and covers the major issues faced by teachers of adult numeracy such as current policy perspectives and implications for teaching practice. There are reflective tasks throughout, which encourage you to develop and apply your theoretical knowledge to your own experiences. Key features include: Reviews of existing policy and research and implications for practice Reflective tasks with commentary, encouraging you to develop and apply your knowledge Case studies of real student experiences Practical activities and ideas to support the planning, teaching and assessment of adult numeracy Drawing on the substantial experience of the contributors, who have a wealth of experience as practitioners and researchers in the field, this book is an essential resource for trainee and practising teachers of adult numeracy and mathematics. It is also an ideal textbook to support teacher training courses leading to a subject specific qualification in teaching numeracy to adults. Contributors: Jackie Ashton, John Barton, Carolyn Brooks, Martyn Edwards, Janette Gibney, David Holloway, David Kaye, Beth Kelly, Barbara Newmarch, Helen Oughton, David Prinn, Diana Spurr, Rebecca Woolley "This is a quite unique book about teaching adult numeracy, which will be invaluable to the many practitioners in this field. The chapters, contributed by a group of experienced and successful lecturers and practitioners, include all aspects of this field, from methods of teaching specific mathematical topics to more general explorations of dyscalculia and emotional factors in adult learners. Each chapter includes research findings and thoughtful presentation of ideas with practical ideas for teaching, and tasks for the reader. This is a market which has not been served well in the past, so it is good to see the gap filled at last." Margaret Brown, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics Education, King's College London, UK "The editors of this book set out to produce a text that would support teacher-education programmes for adult numeracy, and their book does that and more. The content covers different types of learners, different settings, different understandings of what numeracy actually is; and ranges from commentary on research through case studies to "how to" hints and tips for teaching. Chapters 7 (on provoking mathematical thinking) and 8 (attitudes, beliefs and teaching) should be a required read for any adult numeracy teacher. The book would be at home on any numeracy teacher's desk, and would make an excellent set text for numeracy teacher training courses." Carol Randall, course co-ordinator for numeracy in the department of Lifelong Learning Teacher Education, University of Greenwich, UK "This book is a welcome addition to the growing literature on adult numeracy. It should be essential reading for trainee and practising adult numeracy educators. It brings together relevant research and professional wisdom on a wide variety of aspects of adult numeracy teaching and learning in an accessible way, with well-focussed tasks for readers to extend their knowledge and understanding. While the book is born out of UK concerns and issues, it is also relevant to international readers. Highly recommended." Professor Diana Coben PhD, Director, National Centre of Literacy & Numeracy for Adults, University of Waikato, New Zealand, and Hon. Trustee, Adults Learning Mathematics - A Research Forum (ALM -- www.alm-online.net/)

Ein Labyrinth voller Geheimnisse Barcelona in den turbulenten Jahren vor dem Bürgerkrieg: Der junge David Martín fristet sein Leben als Autor von Schauergeschichten. Als ernsthafter Schriftsteller verkannt, von einer tödlichen Krankheit bedroht und um die Liebe seines Lebens betrogen, scheinen seine großen Erwartungen sich in nichts aufzulösen. Doch einer glaubt an sein Talent: Der mysteriöse Verleger Andreas Corelli macht ihm ein Angebot, das Verheißung und Versuchung zugleich ist. David kann nicht widerstehen und ahnt nicht, in wessen Bann er gerät – und in welchen Strudel furchterregender Ereignisse ... Mit unwiderstehlicher erzählerischer Kraft lockt uns Carlos Ruiz Zafón wieder auf den Friedhof der Vergessenen Bücher: mitten hinein in einen Kosmos voller Spannung und Fantastik, Freundschaft und Liebe, Schrecken und Intrige. In eine Welt, die vom diabolischen Wunsch nach ewiger Schönheit regiert wird.

Die 8. Auflage des Campbell (deutsche Ausgabe BA 11/09) wurde jetzt unter Beachtung der hiesigen Lehrpläne für die Oberstufe bearbeitet und erschien in einem wesentlich handlicheren, schultaschenfähigen Format. Der Campbell hatte sich bereits früher als Zusatzlehrbuch für Leistungskurse Biologie und berufliche Gymnasien mit entsprechend fachlicher Ausrichtung bewährt. Diese für Schulen optimierte Ausgabe ist im Rahmen des Imprints Pearson Schule eine folgerichtige Edition (vgl. auch M. Kölling: "Einführung in Java mit Greenfoot"; R. Hattenhauer: "Informatik für Schule und Ausbildung", beide BA 9/10). Ein Themenband zur Ökologie ist für November diesen Jahres angekündigt. - Vorrangig ist der Band für Bibliotheken mit den oben angesprochenen Schultypen im Einzugsbereich zu empfehlen. Als allgemeines Biologielehrbuch ohne bundeslandspezifische Varianten ist der auch preislich sehr akzeptable Titel aufgrund seines fachlichen Niveaus und seiner grafisch hervorragenden Gestaltung auch darüber hinaus einsetzbar.
