Research says that understanding computation algorithms before using them leads to increases in both conceptual and procedural knowledge. (Mathematical Learning and Study Committee, 2001) In this game, students focus on the properties of multiplication, looking at patterns, and then develop understanding of the multiplication process before moving on to the algorithm.
