Topological Tic-Tac-Toe (Grades 7 – 12)
The familiar game of tic-tac-toe becomes fun and challenging when we play it on alternative topological surfaces. The typical 3×3 game board is enhanced by gluing together pairs of opposite edges together in various ways, making for more interesting games and mind-bending playing spaces. Students will learn to appreciate the ins and outs of these new objects as they develop strategies to master the mathematically enhanced games.
