Abstract

This study examined the use of a computer-based mathematics simulation game with differing forms of advisement on transfer of mathematics skills, and attitude toward instruction. A game was developed using the principles of anchored instruction and piloted on middle school students in a gulf coast city. The independent variables were context of advisement and mode of instruction. The dependent variables were performance on an authentic transfer task and attitude towards mathematics. Preliminary analysis of the data indicate that the game was more effective than the computerized word problems. Analysis of gender, competition, and other variables are ongoing.
