Students and adults of all ages enjoy playing games. Some games offer players the opportunities to illustrate and reinforce mathematical concepts while also encouraging and enhancing mathematical reasoning and sense-making. In developing an optimal strategy, game-players engage beyond content and develop processes and proficiencies, as outlined in the Common Core State Standards. Join Sarah DeLeeuw and Patrick Vennebush from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics on August 28th to discuss how two simple games, Tic-Tac-Toe and the Game of Nine Cards, lend serious educational value for students of all ages and teachers too! They will facilitate a conversation motivated by articles from NCTM’s three school journals that will focus on differentiation, discourse, strategic competence, and reasoning and sense-making. You will be invited to play along as they demonstrate with both paper-based versions and technological tools, such as an online activity from Illuminations and an app for mobile devices (tablets and smart phones). Risk: Learning is fun. You may become addicted.
