Can't find a game that teaches what you need to cover in class? Why not create your own? A fun look at educational game design.

Dr. Heidenreich has developed many simple pen and paper games to teach math skills and topics in his College Algebra, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus courses. In this session we'll cover the theory of quick game design, tips, and pitfalls to watch out for. As a concrete example illustrating these things, we'll play some of his games in the session. Free copies of the rules and materials for these games will be distributed to any who request them.
