Flagway – Having Fun, Learning Math
Date posted: June 18, 2019
Flagway is a game that combines math and physical movement.
Flagway™ can be played with students as early as 1st grade and has been enjoyed by adults. In general the game is played with 3rd – 6th graders. During game play students navigate a Flagway or course of radial “paths” based on the Flagway rules (derived from the “Mobius” Function). Speed counts, so as students develop into skilled players several may be running through the course simultaneously, creating dynamics similar to that of a sporting event. Part of the beauty of Flagway is that students can play the game without knowing the rules, allowing all students access to the game and the underlying mathematical principles.
