Mathematically-rich games
Issue Date: 
Proceedings of the Redesigning pedagogy: culture, knowledge and understanding conference, Singapore, May 2007.
In this paper, I will discuss the use of mathematically-rich games to develop in students certain skills and processes that are important in their daily and future workplace life. For example, students will learn through these games how to pose relevant and important questions when faced with a problem, how to formulate conjectures to solve the problem, what strategies or heuristics to use, and how to monitor their progress and their own thinking. The context is very real for these students because the outcome, whether they win or lose, matters to them.
