The Tile Game

  • Richard C. BanksEmail author
In the Classroom


A simplified method of teaching dimensional analysis to students that can be used in a liberal arts, nonmathematical chemistry course is presented in the form of a game or puzzle that can be played by the student. This game is designed to counter the mathematical anxiety that many students bring to such courses. The result of the game is that certain concepts in chemistry relating to numbers can be taught in a fun interactive manner.
