#### LESSONS

• 1 KEEPING FIT This page involves students in using energy formulae for calculations in the context of exercising in a leisure centre gym.
• 3 LOCAL LEISURE This page allows students to interpret data concerning local leisure activities and to present data in the form of charts and graphs.
• 5 BUREAU DE CHANGE This page gives students the opportunity to gain evidence that they can convert between two systems (in this case currencies), using a conversion constant. They will need to use multiplication and division, and calculate percentages to complete the exercises.
• 7 KEEPING AFLOAT This page aims to give students practice in calculating volumes and averages in the context of water used by the boating leisure industry.
• 9 CINEMA SURVEY This page allows students to collect and interpret data concerning the frequency of cinema attendances and the total cost of an evening out.
• 11 GETTING IN This page enables students to estimate and to make calculations involving time, division and multiplication from data supplied concerning entrance arrangements at a football stadium.
• 13 USING ROPES This page uses data concerning various types of rope used in sports to allow students to calculate percentages and ratios, and interpret data.
• 15 TAKE THE TRAIN This page uses data concerning punctuality claims made by railway companies to allow students to carry out calculations involving percentages and probability, and to present figures in diagrammatic form.
• 17 CAR PARK This page asks students to plan a car park for a zoo, interpreting data and making calculations involving division, multiplication and percentage, prior to producing a scale drawing.
• 19 WHAT PRICE LEISURE? This exercise gives students an opportunity to collect data involving money spent on leisure activities, to present it using frequency distribution charts, and to analyse it (including finding mean, mode and median).
• 21 THE BALL POOL Students calculate the volume of a cube, cuboid, cylinder and triangular prism in the context of the design of a ball pool. They use formulae, and will need to be confident with large numbers and converting within scales.
• 23 NO SWEAT This page provides an opportunity for data presentation and interpretation. Students are also asked to convert data between scales (°C to °F), using a conversion graph and formula, and to calculate probabilities.
• 25 TOO FEW FACILITIES? This page uses data analysis, averages, probability, estimates and fractions in the context of investigating car parking and toilet facilities at a stately home.
• 27 SAILING PUZZLE This page gives students practice in calculations based on data collection, and involves subtraction, multiplication, time calculations and use of a formula.
• 29 MEASURING UP This page enables students to plan, design and produce scale drawings for a small office in a nature reserve information centre. The page involves data collection (measurement), and drawing two dimensional and three dimensional diagrams.
• 31 SITE-U-LIKE This page gives students the opportunity, through the preparation of a finance report for a company involved in the preservation of historic buildings, to gain evidence that they can describe situations using percentages and fractions, and produce pictograms. They must work with large numbers (millions). Addition will be needed to find the total.
• 33 ON YOUR BIKE! This page gives students practice in calculations and using averages and percentage, in the context of setting up a bicycle hire company.
• 35 PIZZA PROBE This page asks students to consider costs relative to volume, working from data concerning a leisure centre cafeteria.
• 37 GARDEN CENTRE This page encourages students to calculate profits, losses and discounts, using percentages and money, in the context of managing a garden centre.
• 39 TRAVEL TEASER Like many real life number problems, this is a real brain teaser because it introduces two variables, ratio and area. Both must be understood to reach a solution.
