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:

Comment recorded on the 24 May 'Starter of the Day' page by Ruth Seward, Hagley Park Sports College: "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" Comment recorded on the 19 October 'Starter of the Day' page by E Pollard, Huddersfield: "I used this with my bottom set in year 9. To engage them I used their name and favorite football team (or pop group) instead of the school name. For homework, I asked each student to find a definition for the key words they had been given (once they had fun trying to guess the answer) and they presented their findings to the rest of the class the following day. They felt really special because the key words came from their own personal information." 


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 MathsLearning 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.

"Mathopoly concept is great but no one goes bankrupt (in 2 player mode)! Suggest raising the rents (up to 50%? ) of value. Joseph B, Catholic Cathedral College, NZ
"Thanks for your suggestion Joseph B. Here's a link that will take you to a 50% rent version of this game: 50% rent version." Transum,
"Mathopoly is great but 75% more rent will be a lot better." ,
