Finally, I ran KenKen tournament.That was a nice experience for me and I am going to share it with you.
I chose AhmadAbad education zone (Mashhad- Iran ministry of education) to hold the tournament because I am teaching mathematics there. So firstly, I informed other teachers about kenken puzzles competition. The teachers agreed to introduce students to these types of puzzles and how to solve them, while I was responsible for running the tournament. I asked teachers to choose three student from each school for the tournament. Finally, about 40 students were selected.
After one month, we ran the tournament between selected students from each school. A multi-round tournament was chosen for this competition. The selected students from schools gathered in one place. Although, they knew how to solve kenken, two students were to show them how to solve these puzzles again. We also had lots of one to one competitions with small awards there. ادامه ی مطلب
