Introduction

This booklet contains all the information and many of the resources needed to play Mathopoly.This maths revision game is intended for use as a fun revision session for year 9 students. It covers the topics examined in year 9: numbers; algebra; shape, space and measurement; and handling data. However, it is not all encompassing of the year 9 curriculum. The game is to be played in groups of 4 or 5. The game should be completed within a one hour lesson, but may be shorted if necessary. The questions cover levels 5 to 8. All level 8 questions are marked and, if necessary, can be removed from the game, depending on the ability of the group. The score sheets include a column for the students to record the topics of questions they have answered, in order to assess their strengths and weaknesses.
