Nuffield Mathematics teaching resources are for use in secondary and further education

# Level 1 Money management

Students work out the best buys for items sold in different-sized packs at different prices.

## Mobile phone tariffs

Students use an Excel spreadsheet to calculate mobile phone bills. They compare mobile phone tariffs to see which is best for someone to use.

## Invoices

Students check and complete invoices. Students also work with their own data in spreadsheet simulations of invoices.

## Spot the errors

Students check for errors in a simulated invoice, phone bill and bank statement (several errors on each).

## Savings and interest

Students calculate interest for one year, then compound interest using a decimal multiplier.

## Simple and compound interest

Students use algebraic and spreadsheet formulae in Excel to calculate simple and compound interest.

## Wages and overtime

Students investigate potential jobs and compare the wages. They use a spreadsheet to calculate overtime rates of pay.

## Work out the VAT

Students work out VAT without a calculator, then check their answers using a different method. This check could be done on a calculator or computer.

## Bank balance

This game gives learners practice in working with money, entering items onto a bank statement and calculating the balance.
