Do Extra Maths Games Improve Test Scores?
START stands for Schools Teaching Awareness of Randomised Trials.
We want to improve our test scores in Maths. We wondered how we could do this? Taylor had an idea that maybe extra maths games might help.
But how could we know for sure?
We agreed to test our theory using a randomised trial.
We decided to use the pupils in first, second and third class as guinea pigs.
We divided the classes into two groups, a test group and a control group. Then we decided to play a variety of maths games with the test group while the control group played board games.
Does playing games help you in Maths?
