Frontier Science: Can you gamify the teaching of logic/critical thinking? (413)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Teaching proofs,  logic or critical thinking is usually hard, expensive and time consuming. Recent developments in theoretical computer science grounded in the fundamentals of mathematics might be able to help. We will present a software approach that aims to gamify the process. Bring a laptop/tablet and play.
