Kirby Deater-Deckard and colleagues receive NSF grant to develop games to teach math.


Kirby Deater-Deckard and colleagues in education, math, and engineering will receive an award from NSF for the proposal, “Gateways to Algebraic Motivation, Engagement and Success (GAMES): Supporting and Assessing Fraction Proficiency with Game-Based, Mobile Applications and Devices.” The grant will allow them to develop new games for handheld devices that help middle school students master pre-algebra concepts and examine how individual differences in "engagement" interact with the technology in influencing learning outcomes.
