Join us for an informative session where you can learn about the integration of math games into the classroom. Don't miss this, as you can use these games immediately with your students.
UPDATE: Take a quick math games survey -- http://goo.gl/8YPf8
Here is the tentative itinerary:
-- James Cleveland (@jacehan): the difference between trivia-style games, where the math leads to the game, and games where the math IS the game
-- John Golden (@mathhombre): the BEST math game ever, Decimal Pickle, Eleusis - an induction game, game making, and quick glance at a framework for evaluating games
-- Elizabeth (@cheesemonkeysf): a practical overview of the Life on the Number Line game to help build conceptual understanding and procedural fluency of real number representations
-- John is a math ed professor at Grand Valley State University working mostly in preparation of K-12 teachers. He is a big believer in the math-games connection,
and uses them in teacher ed classes, regular math classes, and every chance he gets in K-12 classrooms, in particular with Jeff Schiller's 5th grade students the last few years.
-- @Cheesemonkeysf (Elizabeth) teaches Algebra 1, Math Support, and Math Intervention at middle school in the SF Bay Area.
