Why Einstein's Equation Game?  Games make learning fun  Lower’s anxiety and opens possibilities  Competition is a motivator  Provides a need to know more about alternative algorithms  Easily modified for differentiation, age or ability

Equations, The Game of Creative Mathematics  Developed by Yale professor, Dr. Laymen E. Allen in ‘60s  \$45 on Amazon  Learning to Play Equations DVD - \$10  YouTube instructions  40 years of research and improvement

What is needed?What is needed?  24 dice  1 minute timer  Playing Mat  Dry erase markers  Fun Foam Dice Mat

How to PlayHow to Play  Play with Shoulder Buddy  Roll die, highest roll goes first  Roll 12 dice, called Mover  Organize dice or resources  Mover selects a goal or answer  Challenger determines if goal is possible or not

Flubs  P Flub = No solution is possible, Mover must prove there are still possible solutions  A Flub = Move allows a solution using at most one more cube from resources, Challenge proves a solution can be made with one more cube from resources  C Flub = Mover should have challenged a pervious Flub  Can be a set up, so pay attention!

Keeping ScoreKeeping Score  Keep it easy, the task is creating equations, scoring should not be difficult  One point for either finding a Flub or winning with the last equation  Give reward for team that wins most points, no ties rewarded
