This assignment requires you to select a range of three existing mathematics-based games (not activities) and provide a critical analysis of their suitability for use in mathematics lessons. Your first game must cater for early stage 1 kindergarten students, the second game for stage 1 year 1 students, and the third game for stage 1 year 2 students. Each chosen game should be a different format, eg. computer based, board game, iPad/iPod app, a card game, dice game etc, and one game must incorporate the use of digital technology. The games must not be of a rote-based nature, and worksheets should not be included. The prescribed template (on vUWS) must be used for this assignment.
