We created our first rules and strategy worksheet before kickoff in 2018 to help students analyze the rules and identify important information for game analysis and strategic goal-setting. We instructed students to answer the questions as they read the rules and discussed answers as a group afterward. We found the worksheet and ensuing discussion immensely helpful for improving student understanding of the game rules. We have added new questions and examples inspired by the 2018 and 2019 games as well as rewritten some previous questions to be more clear. I’d like to thank @Allison_K, @Katie_UPS, and @ahartnet for reviewing the updated worksheet and providing much-appreciated feedback.
Please feel free to use the worksheet or any of our questions during your kickoff, we just kindly request that you give attribution to Team 2791 in any new materials created. If you do use it, I would love to hear about your experience!
In addition to publicly posting this worksheet, we will post our answers to each question sometime during the first few days of the season.
EDIT: I have also attached an alternative version with spaces to actually answer the questions. Thanks @Connor_H for putting that together!
