Teaching Important Concepts through the Use of Games in the Classroom

In this workshop we will explore how the game dynamics from familiar games, such as Balderdash, Connect Four, Hedbanz, and Jeopardy, can be used to teach and reinforce the important vocabulary and concepts in mathematics.  Each game will be explained, followed by an example, time to play, and discussion about how the game could be adapted to be used in your own classroom.
