## Monopoly Part 1

#### Activity Overview

Imagine asking your students to go home and play a game of Monopoly for homework? Which properties represent the best value for money? Where should you place your houses and hotels? In this three part investigation, students are provided with a degree of scaffolding in Part 1 followed by less and less scaffolding. In Part 1 students explore how the price of properties vary as you travel around the board. What's behind this variation?
