In statistics class, hypothesis testing is traditionally one of the most difficult units, filled with new vocabulary and difficult concepts. To alleviate tension introducing this topic, the author brings in bingo cards, with the vocabulary words randomized on it. Click on the picture to see a sample card.
Great piece by a Games Network veteran on how she uses bingo to liven up her math lectures! Check out the link below for more!
I hope you will join us for all or part of an end-of-semester game date hosted by members of the CUNY Games Network at BMCC. We will have a selection of excellent games to play. We will also have informal conversations about the pedagogical uses of games as we play. We hope to make this an end-of-semester tradition, so please come help kick it off! Besides, we know that everyone can use a little game time to blow off steam after the stress of exams and turning in grades.
Here are the details:
What: Game Meet-up
When: Wednesday, June 1, 11-5pm
Where: BMCC Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship (Rm. S501B)
We will have a lunch break during the meet-up to get some local fare (either in-house or from the yummy venders off campus).
If you have a favorite game, please bring it with you. Looking forward to seeing you all on the 1st!
The CUNY Games Network Steering Committee
