MATH
Drawing from sources like these, MUNTW aims to
to model the actual production of natural resources by all
countries / regions through
2 dice probability.
South America has around 5% of the world's population.
Math based
Example: South America produces around 18% of the world's Iron Ore.
There is an 8% chance that a 4 is rolled.
There is an 11% chance that a 9 is rolled.
Therefore, South America has a 4 and 9 as its country numbers for iron ore.
Standards of Mathematical Practices
The Standards of Mathematical Practices (SMPs) are skills applicable for all levels of math learning. There are 8 SMPs.
Students understand how probability works and persevere through unpredictability of probability in the short term.
Students logically map out a strategy that takes into account their strengths and weaknesses as a country/region.
Students justify their thinking in how best to complete their goals, while critiquing others' ideas.
Students model their own dice probability and compare it with the expected probability.
Students strategically use their tools (resources and voting power) and leverage them to achieve their goals .
Students constantly review their calculations as expected dice probability may not match the actual dice rolls.
The structure of the game allows for students to plan and strategize their
next move.
Students recognize patterns as probability plays out expectedly over more rounds of play.
Students utilize this knowledge in their strategy.
MUN Trade War mainly focuses on probability. However, in the works is a resource that would include other math topics like:

Geometry (Area, Angles)

Proportions

Linear Algebra

Distributive Property
