    • Example 1
    • Salute
      Salute! The product is 40.
      He has 2 and she has 4. What is my number?
    • Discussion
      Games can be used to increase opportunities for mental strategies.
      Games can be used to develop number sense.
    • Example 2
    • Sudoku with Cubes
      Fill in the nine spaces with numbers 1, 2 or 3 such that each row has each number exactly once.

    • Take One or Two
      Take turns to remove either one or two paper clips.
      The game is for two players.
      The winner is the player who remove the last paper clip(s).
      Start with any number of paper clips
    • What is the winning strategy?
    • What if the rule is changed? A player removes either one, two or three clips.
    • Discussion
      Games can be used to help student look for patterns and make generalization.
    • Example 4
      This was not discussed during the lecture but I invite you to think how a traditional Southeast Asian game can be used to develop mathematical thinking.
