**Welcome to Tim’s Functional Maths Classes. Sections 1 to 6 **have short, self-teach lessons for you to do on-line. **Find the section for the topic and level** you want, and then click on the lesson you want. The levels are Entry Level1, Entry Level2, and then Entry Level3.

The lessons marked MOHT come from the *Move On Hot Topics *collection. These take about half an hour, but you can go at your own speed, or come back to it later. In the MOHT lessons, click the *MoveOn* button on the bottom-right to go to the next screen.

The lessons marked RWP come from the *Read Write Plus* collection. These are very short: just 10 minutes, with a clear explanation and a few questions. The Maths4Us topics are very practical: about time, money & food.

**Section 7 **has links to other websites for studying maths, such as *BBC Skillswise* and *National Numeracy Challenge*. **Section 8** has revision notes.

Times Tables

To get quicker at times tables, use this trainer for 5 minutes, one or two times a day. Select the tables you want to practice: eg *1×1 to 5×5* or *6×6 to 9×9*. Then just answer the questions as they come up. You’ll get corrected on the ones you get wrong, so you can type in the right answer; and you’ll be re-tested on those ones later on. You can quit early by clicking *Multiply*, or another option; or you can change the timing settings.
