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:

"My Primary 7 class in Mercy Primary school, Belfast, look forward to your mental maths starters every morning. The variety of material is interesting and exciting and always engages the teacher and pupils. Keep them coming please."

Comment recorded on the 18 September 'Starter of the Day' page by Mrs. Peacock, Downe House School and Kennet School:

"My year 8's absolutely loved the "Separated Twins" starter. I set it as an optional piece of work for my year 11's over a weekend and one girl came up with 3 independant solutions."

Nim

A very old game but one which involves mathematical based strategies. Take turns with the computer to remove items from the piles. You can remove as many items from the same row as you like. Whoever removes the last item is the winner.

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.

"Mathopoly concept is great but no one goes bankrupt (in 2 player mode)! Suggest raising the rents (up to 50%? ) of value.
Thanks for great resources."
