How I Use It
I teach statistics of population, sample sizes first then I play the game. After the game, I add a tangent of multi variate regression. In advanced classes I introduce differential equations.
My Take
The way that I use the game, alot of planning is required and the game doesn't end fast enough to be completed in a normal period. Likewise, a full day class would be more appropriate for my application
