Example text

Clearly, students’ intuition often points to a simple heuristic rule which says that “the larger the number of participants, the larger number should be written on the piece of paper” – and generally, this is true. You can illustrate this by displaying a curve: winning number number of participants and, of course, do not display any numbers here – this is purely an illustration of the idea (and, of course, the exact shape of this increasing curve is arbitrary). Clearly, if there is one participant, any number would “win” this competition.

You will need a sheet of paper for each pair and a pen for each of the players. connected Draw a number (say, n) of dots on the paper. The two players move alternatively with A moving first. At each move, a player can join two points with a line (not 32 3 Icebreakers necessarily a straight line), but they cannot join points which were already joined directly or join a point to itself. not connected In mathematical terms, the players are building a graph (with predefined n nodes) by connecting some of the dots with edges (lines).

The teacher should make a deliberate effort to make the classroom, or space, a place where Puzzle-based Learning is going to work. There is no doubt that this approach to a course will be quite unusual for many teachers and most students. Because of this, we must pay special attention to reducing the possibility of the classroom itself from being an obstacle to adoption. We have already discussed that the student needs to understand the purpose and use of what they are learning, and they need to practice this in an environment that prepares them for the application of the skill.
