Grid Lock Questioning Grids

Questioning Grids are an idea I've seen used by a teacher within my old school. Its an Idea I liked very much as it brought together grid reading, probability and if a teacher really wanted to talk about it sample space diagrams. The idea is a student rolls two dice then answers the question on the grid. I also saw the said teacher using this methods with subject specialist key words and the student had to try and fit the word into an appropriate sentence. The grid looks like this. 

This then led to a development of using specifically 'maths' words on the grid. Words included were positive, negative, decrease, ratio, degree, division and inequality.  inspired by the of maths and men display.

Following on from this I developed the point scoring connect 4 game, (which I am sure people have used before me). This then meant students chose their own boxes and questions, but the winner was the person with the most points at the end.  More to follow on this later. 

However at the moment I am catching a train to London to hopefully meet some of the people reading this post.
