A Tarsia activity on linear sequences (nth term rule). These type of activities can be used to consolidate understanding of a given topic, and foster positive group work and co-operative learning. For more ideas on how to use these types of activities (including twists!) and to download the latest version of the wonderful free software to open this resource (and create your own), just click on the web-link. If you have any comments, or spot any (non deliberate!) mistakes, please share them below. Many thanks to all the teachers who have helped me assemble these Tarsias over the years.
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.

Attached are the game board, cut-out footballs, game card template and instructions. Students answer questions from the game cards (that you can tailor for any topic) and move the ball through the grid on the board, aiming to eventually score goals. Wrong answers lead to 'tackles' where the opponent gets to move instead. This has proved to be good fun for various Maths topics so far.<br />
PLEASE NOTE: My focus and passion as a teacher is in creating fun an enriching games to use in Maths and other subjects. Do have a look at my other resources - there may be variations on this one and other exciting ideas...
I made these to help me save time when marking the books- If I wrote it several times one day I went home and made a sticker for it.. You need to buy the appropriate sized stickers. I got mine from eBay. The one I use the most is "Extra Challenge" which saves you having to write "Here is an extra challenge for you to do". Hope they help you too!
