Making your own maths game
Over the next two days, we would like to you create and make your very own maths games which can involve any area of maths you wish i.e. times tables, fractions, money, statistics, ratio, angles or a combination of them all etc.
You can choose what style of game you wish to make (electronic version, board game, card based etc).
Some examples; Who Wants To Be a Millionaire, snakes and ladders with questions you have to answer before you climb the ladder, arithmetic style board game, snap (which calculations give you the same answer) or a loop game.
The possibilities are endless, and we are sure you can create some really exciting games! Don't forget to send these in to us and we will use them as our starter games for next week
