Product Description


Team Games are special mathematical puzzles and problems which produce real cooperation between the members of a team. The mathematical content is that of the normal curriculum. Each player only gets some of the information and so all must play a part in arriving at a solution. Sixteen tried and tested team games are provided in photocopiable form.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource for all maths teachers 22 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The title is slightly misleading, in that the book contains 16 variations of the same game, but don't be deterred by that. Each game contains 12 cards, one of which explains to the students what they have to do, with the rest giving clues to the answers. The students then have to solve the jigsaw of information to arrive at the solution.

Most of the games can be used straight out of the box - just photocopy the sheet, cut out the cards and you have a ready-made lesson. One or two of the games contain some complex clues which I prefer to rewrite, but there is a blank set of cards included which makes this very easy to do.

The topics cover all strands of the national curriculum - number, algebra, geometry and data handling - and are suitable for levels 5 through 8.

Highly recommended as a way of adding variety and group-working skills to maths lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic teacher resource 11 Nov 2008
By Sacha
I have used the team challenges in this book with years 7, 8 and 9 and now that they are used to them the pupils are delighted when they see the cards on my desk. The games encourage connected thinking - pupils have to work out what they are being asked to do, extract the necessary information, decide how to solve the puzzle and how to present their answers. I have started laminating the cards because I will use them again and again. These are also excellent for pupils who are held back by their writing/reading abilities as there is so much oral work involved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Esay to use, and enjoyable for students 14 Aug 2009
I'm a fan of tarquin resources anyway, but this was better than most. The activities are ready to be photocopied and cut up, and the teacher notes are very helpful with regard to organistaion and preparation. My only gripe would be that there simply aren't enough activities in there, as my students really enjoyed them.
