1. Arrange students into groups. Each group needs at least ONE person who has a mobile device.

2. If their phone camera doesn't automatically detect and decode QR codes, ask students to

- Download a QR reader (e.g. I-Nigma | NeoReader | Kaywa) onto their mobile devices
- Bring these devices into the lesson.

4. Cut them out and place them around your class / school.

1. Give each group a clipboard and a piece of paper so they can write down the decoded questions and their answers to them.

2. Explain to the students that the codes are hidden around the school. Each team will get ONE point for each question they correctly decode and copy down onto their sheet, and a further TWO points if they can then provide the correct answer and write this down underneath the question.

3. Away they go! The winner is the first team to return with the most correct answers in the time available. This could be within a lesson, or during a lunchbreak, or even over several days!

4. A detailed case study in how to set up a successful QR Scavenger Hunt using this tool can be found here.

## Question | ## Answer |

1. 1 What is 10% of 514? Find the answer in this room. | |

2. 2 What is the formula to calculate the area of a simple shape? Go to F7. | |

3. 3 What is the formula to calculate the area of a cuboid? Look on the photocopier. | |

4. 4 What calculation do you do to change a decimal to a percentage? Look in the corridor for the lightbulb. | |

5. 5 The antique TV set you bought has proved very difficult to sell. At first it was priced at £100, but you had to mark it down to £80. Then it was marked down to £64. How much will it cost after the next mark down? Go to the cafe. | |

6. 6 Jane is older than Kim. Kim is older than Shaun. Shaun is younger than Jane. Rachel is older than Jane. List the people from oldest to youngest. Look for the equilateral triangle. | |

8. 8 What is the formula to find the area of a triangle? Go to G6. | |

9. 9 What is the formula to find the area of a circle? Go to Reception. | |

10. 10 I stroll daily at 2 miles an hour. My jogger friend, however, has worked to change this, saying, “Why don’t you jog? You’d cover the same 12 mile distance, and you’d save a lot of time”. I notice that he jogs exactly 3 times as fast as I stroll. How much time will I save if I jog with him? Go to Safia’s desk in G1. | |

11. 11 What calculation do you do to change a fraction to a decimal? Go to G9. | |

12. 12 A ball is dropped from a height of 125m. Each time it hits the ground it bounces 3/5 of the height it fell. How high will the ball bounce on the 3rd bounce? Go to the door of the toilets in the G corridor. Go to the lift door. | |

13. 13 How many metres in a kilometre? Look inside the lift. | |

14. 14 In the first year of production a play sells 1572 tickets, in its second year it sells 1753 tickets, in its third year it sells 152 less than in its second year. How many tickets are sold in the three years? Go to F15. | |

15. 15 Linda didn’t like to tell her age, so when she was asked, her mother answered for her. Her mother said “I’m just seven times as old as she is now. In twenty years, she will be just half the age that I will be then.” How old is Linda? Look down the stairs. | |

16. 16 What numbers would you get if you split 96 in the ratio 2:6? Look in Jack’s Maths folder. | |

17. 17 Add up all the numbers on the telephone dial. Go to the Smartboard in our classroom. | |

18. 18 Congratulations you’ve finished. |
