Functional Maths Skills

A class of Year 9 pupils took part in a maths lesson by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue’s John Berrisford.  Pupils were informed how functional maths helps firefighters every day in order to protect them and save lives. Firefighters do not have time to sit down with a calculator and work out how much air they have in their tank and how much time they have to rescue people, they have to think fast and mentally work out the calculations so that everyone is safe, within seconds of reaching the scene.
