UK Economic Performance - "Dial up" activity

Jonny Clark

13th January 2018

With Brexit continuing to dominate the news headlines, here's an activity that compares the UK's current economic performance with other EU and G20 countries.

For each of the 10 questions, players are asked to give a numerical response, e.g. how many G20 countries have a higher inflation rate than the UK?  The player adjusts the onscreen dial to give an answer.  They will score the value of their submitted number as long as it is not higher than the actual answer.

In this activity, the top possible score is 104.  How close can you get to that number?
