Recreational Math for the Classroom
- 3 Credits
Discover how recreational mathematics is real mathematics presented in a context that makes it fun, interesting and challenging. The regular use of mathematical recreations throughout the year can serve as a means of convincing students that mathematics can be exciting. Hopefully, this enthusiasm will be transferred to other mathematical topics in the traditional curriculum. There may be no more effective means of motivating students of any grade of ability level. This course is designed to help K-12 teachers implement recreational mathematics in meaningful ways.
