I have made some "Math Workouts" to practise number, algebra and functional maths.

They are self marking and each sheet is randomly generated to get you in shape for your exams.

Number Workout

Algebra Workout

Functional Workout

I use them constantly with my pupils as starters for lessons so I thought I'd share.

Hi studymaths;

Good work. There was one answer in the number tests where the question is 2 / 10 = ?. I got marked wrong for .2 or 1 / 5.

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

Ah yes, the question asks you to find just the '?' which is either numerator or the denominator depending on how the sheet generates. If you just put what the '?' value should be it should mark it correct.

I made it like this precisely to avoid having to code multiple correct answers like 1/5 = 0.2 = 20% etc!

Though it appears to have caused confusion!

Okay, thank you.
