Counting the Ways

 

January 2009

Abstract:

Many games involve numbers. Sometimes how you use numbers can help you be successful when playing a game. It may be helpful to know how many outcomes are possible, such as how many different letters are remaining when playing Hangman. In some games you must consider whether the order in which events occur is important and how that might affect the outcome of the game. This activity explores some examples of mathematics at play.
