Maths Vegas Revision Game - Samples
From my collection of Maths Vegas games I have made over the past few years. These have been a tremendous method of engaging the pupils in revision lessons. The pupils really look forward to these lessons and see them as a treat. A great way to trick them into learning and completing good collaborative work.

Here are two examples:
- A high Year 9 class (Edexcel GCSE)
- An AS-Level class (CIE)

Instructions:
Print off some money (Google) or buy some Monopoly money (eBay) to use.
Arrange pupils in groups and give each group £50.
Pupils bet between £1-20 on each topic (before seeing the question) - I find the best way is to instruct the pupils to place their bets on separate whiteboards at the front.
Pupils will double their money with a correct answer or lose it for a wrong answer.

Variations:
- Pupils can bet as much as they like on the last question.
- Pupils can play a 'joker' once so their bet in tripled.
