Playing games and solving puzzles are a great way to improve engagement, develop positive classroom culture and develop mathematical thinking in your students. We have found that when the same games and puzzles are given to elementary level through to senior secondary mathematics, the complexity of the mathematics discovered may be different, but the energy and positive affect that students demonstrate is the same. In this workshop we will share our experiences with a number of these puzzles and games and the mathematics that students have developed through them.
