Rectangle maker
An investigation into perimeters of rectangles using a board game / puzzle as the activity. Pupils move numbers around their board to produce different sized rectangles - includes entire range of answers and some probing questions to challenge / support their learning. The pupils I used it with (Year 7s and even lower set Year 10s) really enjoyed it and got into the investigation. Cut out activity board and cards - one per pair of pupils.
