AJ Webster, Founder, The Sycamore School in MalibuGAMES IN K-6, 7-12
The key to using math skills in real life is for learners to develop sensitivity, inclination, & capacity to engage with math.
This session will define these terms and explore how playing commercial games (both video games and traditional board games) can be a gateway to "making friends with math."
Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the mathematical affordances of games. They will receive a handout that provides a sample lesson plan for a game-based math project as well as a list of further readings and resources.
