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? Comment recorded on the 1 February 'Starter of the Day' page by Terry Shaw, Beaulieu Convent School: "Really good site. Lots of good ideas for starters. Use it most of the time in KS3." Comment recorded on the 16 March 'Starter of the Day' page by Mrs A Milton, Ysgol Ardudwy: "I have used your starters for 3 years now and would not have a lesson without one! Fantastic way to engage the pupils at the start of a lesson." 
Each month a newsletter is published containing details of the new additions to the Transum website and a new puzzle of the month. The newsletter is then duplicated as a podcast which is available on the major delivery networks. You can listen to the podcast while you are commuting, exercising or relaxing. Transum breaking news is available on Twitter @Transum and if that's not enough there is also a Transum Facebook page. 

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. 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."

"... We finished the game by deciding who was the richest  adding up money left and value of properties. Is there a way we can do this within the game, e.g. setting a time limit?
Also rather a big ask! Is there a way a teacher can intervene to add bonus money, eg/ if a student helps another, or if someone from another team gets the right answer to a question the current team struggled with?
And finally.... a version where there is a pause option between rolling the dice and moving round the board, so the much lower level students can simply add and say where the player will end up?
Thanks for the game and your time "
