Math Entry Level 2


Learners at Entry Level 2 are expected to become confident in their use of fundamental mathematical knowledge and skills, as described through the following content areas, and demonstrate their understanding by applying their knowledge and skills to solve simple mathematical problems or carry out simple tasks.

Our Aim

Section 1: Using numbers and the number system – whole numbers, fractions and decimals

  • Count reliably up to 100 items
  • Read, write, order and compare numbers up to 200
  • Recognise and sequence odd and even numbers up to 100
  • Recognise and interpret the symbols +, –, ×, ÷ and = appropriately
  • Add and subtract two-digit numbers
  • Multiply whole numbers in the range e 0 × 0 to 12 × 12 (times tables)
  • Know the number of hours in a day and weeks in a year; be able to name and sequence
  • Divide two-digital whole number by single-digital whole numbers and express remainders
  • Approximate by rounding to the nearest 10, and use this rounded answer to check results
  • Recognise simple fractions (halves, quarters and tenths) of whole numbers and shapes
  • Read, write and use decimals to one decimal place

Section 2: Using common measures, shape and space

  • Calculate money with pence up to one pound and in whole pounds of multiple items and write with the correct symbols (£ or p)
  • Read and record time in common date formats and read time displayed on analogue clocks in hours, half hours and quarter hours, and understand hours from a 24-hour digital clock
  • Use metric measures of length, including millimetres, centimetres, metres and kilometres
  • Use measures of weight, including grams and kilograms
  • Use measures of capacity, including millilitres and litres
  • Read and compare positive temperatures
  • Read and use simple scales to the nearest labelled division
  • Recognise and name 2-D and 3-D shapes, including pentagons, hexagons, cylinders, cuboids, pyramids and spheres
  • Describe the properties of common 2-D and 3-D shapes, including numbers of sides, corners, edges, faces, angles and base
  • Use appropriate positional vocabulary to describe position and direction, including between, inside, outside, middle, below, on top, forwards and backwards
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name

Section 3: Handing information and data

  • Extract information from lists, tables, diagrams and bar charts
  • Make numerical comparisons from bar charts
  • Sort and classify objects using two criteria
  • Take information from one format and represent the information in another format, including use of bar charts

Solving mathematical problems and decision making

Learners should practise reading different types of text. This should include short, straightforward texts that instruct, inform, describe and narrate.
By the end of the course, learners should be able to do the following.

  • Read correctly words designated for Entry Level 2
  • Understand the mian points in texts
  • Understand organisational marker in short, straightforward texts
  • Use effective strategies to find the meaning of words and check their spelling
  • Read and understand sentences with more than one clause
  • Use illustrations, images and captions to locate information

There was a time when I would never have considered being a project manager, but I’m not far behind that now.
