Joe Murry has posted a Race Game in the documents section of this community.

You need to click on the red View Documents tab at the top of the Community page to reach the Documents section.

The Race Game or 'Wacky Racetrack' is a very engaging algebra activity. We tried it last week at the SEN conference in Durham and the teachers there were very enthusiastic about it.

It could also be easily adapted to make it simpler or more challenging depending on the level of your learners by changing the entries e.g. as an introduction to algebra and/or a way of practising tables the entries could be altered to a mixture of x, 2x, 3x, 4x etc.and perhaps dice with numbers beyond 6 could also be used.

What other activities are HLTAs finding useful? Is there something you could share and post a copy in the documents section of the community?
