Do you want to become an unbeatable game-player? In this session, we created our own card deck and used statistics to calculate our chances of winning or losing on our own Pokemón-inspired card game! These techniques can be applied to other games as well, to use math to create an advantage! Are you ready to play?
Preparation: Download and print the Mathmón deck template from this link (in colour, if possible). Get rounded scissors to cut the cards (a plastic ruler may work too); an electronic calculator (you can also use one on a phone or on your computer); a blank piece of paper; pencil; eraser; crayons or markers in different colours.
Expert: Sarah Sun has a Bachelor of Mathematics and develops mathematical models for the banking industry. She was Deputy Leader for Math Team Canada at the International Mathematics Olympiad and is one of the creators of the After Math podcast.
