Subject: Game Activities in Math Education

Are teachers using the 4,000 year old Asian game called Go to 
integrate math instruction with social studies and language arts?

Go is the popular Japanese name known worldwide. Go is called 
Baduk in Korea, and Wei-chi (Wei-qi) in China. Like chess, the game of Go 
offers many curricular connections for student activities. Go remains the
only board game that has not been conquered by computer programmers. 
None of the Go-playing programs currently on the market can offer a serious
challenge to even a strong amateur Go player, let alone a professional.
In fact, researchers in artificial intellingence use Go as a benchmark
for defining many aspects of the human thinking process. See the links
