    Go to page 11. Or "open your book on page 11" (I believe this is also an acceptable option, although I'm not sure about it being natural).
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    One question mark is enough.

    This doesn't really work in BrE.

    Re: go to page 11

    I've learned here that we use 'at' when we want to instruct students to open their books:
    'Open your books at page 3'

    Yes, that's what we say in BrE.

    And "Open your book(s) to page 11" in BrE too.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    In AmE, "Open your books to page 3" or "go to page 3" are most frequently heard.
