Arithmetic Bird: a game for training mathematical operations

André Aparício, Frutuoso Silva
2019 EAI Endorsed Transactions on Serious Games  
We present a game for training main mathematical operations for elementary school students, mainly for the third and fourth-grade.  ...  The results showed that the use of the game has a positive effect on the improvement of the mental calculus rapidness of the players.  ...  Thus, in this paper, we will present a new game, called Arithmetic Bird, designed to helps kids to train the four main mathematical operations.  ...

2020 Journal of Numerical Cognition  
only for those children with a low pre-training arithmetic score.  ...  Thus, the ANS training did not show a specific effect on arithmetic performance.  ...  Game-based training of basic math skills may be helpful, as it may be less threatening to those who have difficulty learning mathematics.  ...

The child-engineering of arithmetic in ToonTalk

Ken Kahn
2004 Proceeding of the 2004 conference on Interaction design and children building a community - IDC '04  
Providing a child-appropriate interface to an arithmetic package with arbitrarily large numbers and exact fractions is surprisingly challenging.  ...  As with other objects in ToonTalk ® , we strive to make the enhanced numbers work in a concrete and playful manner.  ...  I am grateful to Gordon Simpson, Leonel Morgado, and Mary Dalrymple for their comments on this paper.  ...

Approximate Arithmetic Training Improves Informal Math Performance in Low Achieving Preschoolers

Emily Szkudlarek, Elizabeth M. Brannon
2018 Frontiers in Psychology  
However, the relative effectiveness of approximate arithmetic training compared to available educational games, and the type of math skills that approximate arithmetic targets are unknown.  ...  Our results support the conclusion that approximate arithmetic training may be especially effective for children with low math skills, and that approximate arithmetic training improves early informal,  ...  We would also like to thank Joonkoo Park, Nick DeWind, and Stephanie Bugden for their helpful discussions of this manuscript.  ...

V-Naturalizing Kuhn

Alexander Bird
2004 Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society  
A naturalistic conception of paradigms is ripe for development with the tools of cognitive science. As a consequence a naturalistic understanding of world-change and incommensurability is also viable.  ...  This will be true even for the operations involved in a simple arithmetical calculation.  ...  Above I mentioned a mathematical argument with the steps: (i) d 2 /dt 2 = −k 2 sin ; (ii) d 2 /dt 2 ≈ −k 2 for small ; (iii) ≈ a sin kt + c for small .  ...
