EQUATIONS: The Game of Creative Mathematics – What’s it all about? (3:35)

EQUATIONS, called “that peerless math game” by critics, was the first game adapted from the WFF ‘N PROOF resource allocation format in 1962. Forty years of research and testing have extended the range of this joyful learning tool to become the centerpiece of the Instructional Gaming Program in schools.
Studies have shown that classroom EQUATIONS tournaments can double math achievement and reduce absenteeism in urban schools by 2/3. Research demonstrates that EQUATIONS develops skills far beyond “drill and practice” computation. It cultures the critical problem-solving abilities needed to recognize and apply fundamental concepts.
At home, EQUATIONS lets the whole family share a quality learning experience and have fun too. People of all ages become fascinated by this game. It creates a rich problem-solving interaction filled with complex strategy, bluffing and intrigue. The basic game can be taught to eight-year olds using simple arithmetic. As players develop skill, the game becomes more sophisticated. It ultimately expands to concepts that will challenge any intelligent adult.
EQUATIONS explores a broad range of math topics including elementary arithmetic operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation and root operation as well as logarithms, fractions, decimals, percents, variables, algebra, functions and more.

A DVD called “How to Play EQUATIONS” is included in the deluxe version of the game (for only $5) and is highly recommended. This DVD is an easy way to learn to play by following along with an actual teaching session in a sixth grade class. The same presentation is available here online under the “How to Play” menu item.


ON-SETS: The Game of Set Theory – What’s it all about? (6:36)

ON-SETS is an exciting and colorful resource allocation game that teaches set theory – the foundation of modern mathematics. Using game rules similar to EQUATIONS, players in ON-SETS explore the concepts of union, intersection, difference of sets, complement of a set, set identity, set inclusion and the null and universal sets. ON-SETS captures the same creative problem-solving and strategic intrigue as EQUATIONS and WFF ‘N PROOF. The basic game can be taught to six-year olds. As players develop skill, it becomes more sophisticated and ultimately expands to levels that will challenge intelligent adults. The whole family will enjoy exploring this fascinating approach to learning the fundamental ideas behind all mathematics.

Math Science Quest is a fun way to learn the fundamental reasoning skills that are the essence of scientific method. It can be played as an individual puzzle or a multi-player game. Players explore a complex mathematical puzzle attempting to find all the solutions. Experiments can be designed to provide additional information about the resources and concepts used in the undiscovered solutions. Through this elegant and concentrated simulation of scientific method, players develop powerful analytical and intuitive abilities. Math Science Quest creates an integrated improvement in thinking, reasoning, and mathematical comprehension.

REAL NUMBERS – What’s it all about? (1:13)

The REAL NUMBERS game was designed as a prelude to EQUATIONS. It comes in a handy 5-game kit that can be clipped to a pen in your shirt pocket. The REAL NUMBERS Game provides a practical introduction to the process of finding Solutions from randomly generated symbols similar to what occurs in EQUATIONS. The REAL NUMBERS Game deals with real, rational, irrational, integer, and natural numbers.
