Students Can Consolidate and Demonstrate Their Understandings by Creating a Simple App-Based Game

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We have created an app that supports the development of conceptual mastery and fluency through creating and playing matching games. The greatest potential for this tool is realized when a teacher can engage students in creating their own matching games to consolidate, represent and demonstrate their conceptual understandings. In this presentation we will demonstrate the process of designing and creating cards, card sets, and game decks. Once the game deck is completed it can be shared (email, website, or direct) to support others in their ongoing efforts to build mastery, accuracy and fluency using MathTappers: MultiMatch (a free iPad app).
