Cognitive Effects of Games on Mathematics Learning. A Revision of a Paper Presented at the Annual Meeting of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (Cincinnati, Ohio, April 1977).
Bright, George W.; And Others
In this document, available literature is identified and reviewed in order to determine whether there are substantiated cognitive effects associated with the use of games in the mathematics classroom. Three criteria were used for selection of the literature: the treatment was identified as a game; cognitive measures were obtained; and the dependent variables included mathematical variables. The paper observes that the study of games as an instruction-learning process in mathematics has so far been neither thorough nor systematic and no definite conclusions can be made about the use of games in teaching mathematics.
