Accelerative Activities

15. “Ants” (Case-lesson “An ant and its secret life”)

The essence of the game: Try to work as coordinated as ants do. A teacher prepares a few mathematical problems for each team and writes them of a blackboard. The students in teams assign the “responsible” for every action (problem), write the algorithm of execution and – start! The team that’s been first to solve the tasks correctly wins. After all, different types of ants have various occupations; the well-being of an anthill and its progress depend on the coordinated performance of the whole anthill – the team.

OBJECTIVE: Active motion with simultaneous solving of mathematical problems (2-in-1: sport and mathematics), development of logic, complex and system thinking, delegation of authority and team working skills, building of relationships and causal relationships.
