What kind of game is algebra?

Games encourage pupils to work collaboratively as they seek solutions and they will very often work above their normal level because of the relaxed atmosphere in which games are played. The games are suitable for a whole class and collaborative groups, where the pupils work in pairs and they are suitable for use with pupils from Year 6 upwards. The structure of some games will be familiar but they have been given a new twist so that they engage the players with working mentally in an interesting and challenging way.
