Using Games to Engage Students in Inquiry
Byrne, Martha
PRIMUS, v27 n2 p271-280 2017
This paper discusses the author's experiences of getting advanced undergraduate math students to engage in mathematical inquiry by using games as a vehicle for exploration. The students explored the mathematics behind SET®1, Spot it!®2, Blokus®3, and Six®4. Specifically, we present the experience of the instructor and students and how the games were used to promote and incite inquiry.
