Audrey Oliger Mona Shen Sammie Wild Blueprint for the Pursuit of Happiness Concept Our project will be based off the popular board LIFE by Milton Bradley. We will transcend the quest of life into the journey of calculus. We will turn themes such as money and family into grades and students. Instead of using traditional cards with examples of life situations, ours will involve math class. How It Works The game starts with a maximum of 3 players on the square “First Day of School.” To move forward to other squares, players simply need to roll the dice. Each square has a required activity that the player must complete if landed on. Some squares will require the completion of a math question.

Unformatted text preview: math questions. At the finish line, or “Graduation” square, the final math grade is determined by the accumulation of “knowledge points.” A chart included with the game has a set range of “knowledge points” which corresponds to a letter grade. Whoever has the best grade wins. In case of a tie, the winner will be whoever has accumulated the most scholarship cards. Our underlying goal for this game is to give students a further understanding of the crucial calculus concept of derivatives through fun and social interaction.
