THI SciDama


THI SCI-DAMA

Target Learners: Third Year Students
Science Concept: Temperature Humidity Index

Playing THI Sci-Dama
(Refer to the General Rules in Playing SciDama below)



In determining the TEMPERATURE HUMIDITY INDEX,use the tables below

Examples of taking chip:                                               THI                 TOTAL THI
·         25% + 40% = 65%                             91 ̊F                      91 ̊F
·         50% - 25% = 25%                              83 ̊F                   174  ̊F
·         45% - 30% = 15%                              81 ̊F                   255  ̊F
·         25% - 40% = NS (NO SCORE)         NS                     255  ̊F

After adding the remaining chips, the player with the lesser temperature in the Total THI         (  ̊F converted to   ̊C) is declaredwinner.
THI SCI-DAMA BOARD
ARRANGEMENT OF DAMA CHIPS FOR THI SCI-DAMA


            Basically the rules in playing the Filipino checkerboard game called ‘dama’ will be used with some modifications in integrating mathematics and science as follows:

1.      Set the starting positions of the chips

2.      After the startting position of the chips have been set, the first player is  determined by drawing lots.

3.      A chip is allowed to moved diagonally forward only to an adjoining vacant square.

4.      A chip has to take the opponent’s chip diagonally forward or backward thus “pass” is not allowed. Mathematical operations (x,÷,+,-)  will be used depending on the vacant square’s operation symbol where the “taker” chip lands by jumping over the “taken” chip (the latter chip has to be removed from the board after performing the indicated mathematical operation and recording same in the score sheet).

5.      In taking more than one chip, the “taker” chip is always the addend, minuend, multiplicand, or dividend as the case may be.

6.      In taking a chip or more than one chip,the dama rules on ‘dama’,’mayor dalawa or mayor tatlo’,’mayor tatlo over dalawa’,and ‘mayor dalawa or tatlo’,over ‘dama’ prevail.

7.      A chip is declared ‘dama’ upon reaching terminally on the following designated squares:

For Red chips:                         (0,7)  (2,7)  (4,7)  (6,7)

For Blue chips:                         (1,0)  (3,0)  (5,0)  (7,0)

8.      A ‘dama’ chip is allowed to take a chip or more than one chip,or move to any unoccupied square along its diagonal path.Moreover, a dama’s score is doubled in taking a chip or chips,and quadrapled if it takes the opponent’s dama chip.Similarly, an ordinary chip’s score is doubled if it takes a dama chip.

9.      A ‘move’ (e.g. 2→ (6,3) is good only at the most for one minute including its corresponding entries in the score sheet; while the game’s duration is twenty (20) minutes.

10.  The game ends when any of the following situations occur:
·         If no show of one player is declared after ten minutes.

·         Repetitive moves of any or both players

·         A player resigns

·         A player’s chip is cornered

·         A player has no more chip to move

·         The 20 minute game duration ended

11.  The remaining chips have to be added to the respective players' total score.

12.  The player with a lesser total score is declared winner for which he/she is entitled to one point in the tally sheet of contestants or (0.5) in case of a draw.

13.  Only one score sheet is allowed to be accomplished alternately by the two players whereby incorrect entries in the score sheet, shall be their responsibility.

In case of incorrect entries in the score sheet, a player has to call the attention of the competition facilitator by raising one’s hand, that is, after stopping the time. As determined by the said arbiter/facilitator, the appropriate corrections will be done by the erring player in as much as the formers decision is final and unappeasable.
