Instructions

The object of the game is to become the wealthiest player through buying and renting property and answering multiple choice mathematics questions.

Players take turns to roll two dice and move around the playing board the number of spaces indicated by the sum of the two dice. Whenever a player lands on an unowned property they may buy that property at its given price. If any other player then lands on that property they pay the owner the indicated rent.

If a player's funds fall below £0 they will be declared bankrupt and be out of the game.

This game is for two to four players. Please select:

Mathematicians are not the people who find Maths easy; they are the people who enjoy how mystifying, puzzling and hard it is. Are you a mathematician?

"Find the starters wonderful; students enjoy them and often want to use the idea generated by the starter in other parts of the lesson. Keep up the good work"

Learn the basic techniques for cracking codes then practise them using this interactive challenge. There are three levels of difficulty and many different messages to decipher.

Numeracy

"Numeracy is a proficiency which is developed mainly in Mathematics but also in other subjects. It is more than an ability to do basic arithmetic. It involves developing confidence and competence with numbers and measures. It requires understanding of the number system, a repertoire of mathematical techniques, and an inclination and ability to solve quantitative or spatial problems in a range of contexts. Numeracy also demands understanding of the ways in which data are gathered by counting and measuring, and presented in graphs, diagrams, charts and tables."

Go Maths

Learning and understanding Mathematics, at every level, requires learner engagement. Mathematics is not a spectator sport. Sometimes traditional teaching fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of interactive activities and this web site provides many of those. The Go Maths main page links to more activities designed for students in upper Secondary/High school.
