Nifty Assignments and the ACM Digital Library

The last Rocky Mountain CCSC presentation demonstrated the use of games and creative solutions in Nifty Assignments.

Are you interested in how students solve problems using a variety of games? Visit the ACM Digital Library. to read how they used Hunt the Wumpus (updated to Hunt-the-Terrorist), football scores, maze creation, anagrams, stable pairings and Missile Command for class assignments. The Rocky Mountain CCSC has offered Nifty Assignments for the past few conferences and this year, offers a paper for those who were unable to attend.

Due to the multiple conference tracks, I missed some wonderful presentations and workshops. For more information, use the titles listed in the CCSC Rocky Mountain Conference program and visit the ACM Digital Library.
