  2. 2. IntroductionGaming has become a part of everyday life+Innovation needed in the classroom =Introducing gaming into the curriculum for math
  3. 3. Introduction Learning outcomes for online education areequal or superior to fact to face instruction Data suggests that “educational computergames significantly promote motivationtoward learning”• (FENGFENG KE, 2008) Sumdog System is a learning engine
  4. 4. Research Questions Do students show growthin mathematicalperformance after usingthe Sumdog system? Are there limitations forstudents in areas ofdisabilities, gender,socioeconomic status? What are the benefits ofintegrating onlinetutoring into regularclassroom practice andlearning routines?
  5. 5. Methodology Pre/Post test Approval requested Instruction Consistent time acrossstudy participants 9 week duration Missed time provided Teacher monitoring The student time will bemonitored to assure focusand forward movement All students will have thesameinstructor/researcher
  6. 6. Limitations Population Size Small class size Varying cognitivecompetencies Little control ofoutside influences
  7. 7. T-test ANOVA To determine the effect ofSumdog on test scores aT-test was conducted. We use this test forcomparing the meansof two samples (ortreatments). The ANOVA was conductedto determine the fixedeffects of gender,socioeconomic status anddisability in the reaction ofthe scores. ANOVAs are useful incomparing (testing)three, or more means(groups or variables)for statisticalsignificance.Data Analysis

  24. 24. Discussion Sumdog WORKS! Few differences that may show if a bigger sample isused Students were more engaged Students showed excitement to learn
  25. 25. Future Research Looking further into the testing increases at differenttimes throughout the 9 week testing. Reviewing supplementary instruction outside of theonline tool Using this model for different levels of educationincluding middle, high school, and college.
