Abstract

Increasing studies have shown that the mathematical education of the United States, ranks far below the average of many other countries. This problem results from the early education and teaching of mathematics. One area in particular, math fluency, focuses on the retrieval of basic math facts from storage memory to working memory. This project targeted improvement of math fluency through interactive means. Specifically, a game to teach and improve math fluency was created through GameMaker. The game has not been tested and is only in the developmental stage but it has much promise into becoming useful in the success of math fluency in the future.
