Sharing Teaching Ideas: The Rules of the Game

Don Gernes 

May 1999, Volume 92, Issue 5, Page 424

The time spent developing concepts is time well spent. Games with which the students are familiar allow them to "see" an entire deductive system, and the "letter game" enables students to participate within a deductive system with a minimum of preparation. Thus, the key to developing the concept of a deductive system and the concept of proof is found in the "rules of the game".
