Research Findings from Games Involving Basic Fact Operations and Algebraic Thinking at a PDS.
The purposes of this paper are to present research related to the development of new instructional games (named Survivor's Games), and measure the effectiveness of these games to help students (K-5) master basic fact operations (single-digit additions or factor and single- or double digit sums or products), stimulate the exploration of mathematical ideas, and use algebraic thinking at different levels of understanding. Results show that playing the game had a positive effect on students' mastery of the basic addition facts, and the relationship between mastery of basic facts and performance development of algebraic thinking.
