Abstract

As teachers move away from teacher-centered learning to student-centered learning, it is important to think about what methods are best for student success. One way is to integrate games into teaching students about probability. In doing so, they are also able to experience the real-world application of probability through the lens of these games. This talk discusses the benefits of using games as a fun and effective way of teaching students probability.
