#### Cash for questions revision activity

There are 4 sets of questions (Number, Algebra, Shape, Data) which are mainly A and A* (with some lower grade questions from topics which students struggle with, e.g. percentages, constructions). PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Students work in pairs or small groups to answer the questions. When they finish a question they get it marked and if it is correct they are given cash to the value of the question. There are bank notes which you can put your school name and pictures of your teachers on. The team with the most money at the end could be given a prize.

#### Steeplechase Board Game Master Copy

A master copy of my popular steeplechase board game. Enclosed are the game board and card templates which have been designed to fit perfectly on the board. Print the cards in two different colours for easy and difficult piles. The idea is that when a player gets an easy question right they progress one space. A hard question qualifies them to move two spaces. Hard questions must be completed to move over an obstacle. I find it is quite fun to have 'joker' cards too which cause them to miss a go or advance extra spaces.<br />
