Maths skills not great, listening poor

I gave my Year 13 class a quick Maths test as part of a lesson on testing (and a secret test on listening). They were asked to email me in the subject line two numbers z and c representing their answers…

x=36;y=3;z = x/y; print(z) ie 36/3 = 12
a=23;b=16;c=b-a; print(c) ie 16-23= -7

I gave then 60 seconds more or less…. the results were;

81% got the first question correct. 57% got the second question correct. Only 14% followed instructions regarding how to present answers correctly.

Not great.
