Abstract

In this study, we developed new dialog interfaces realized as Java applets for the Instructional Activities Game (IAG) developed by Matsuda (2004). These interfaces helped to promote the use of mathematical views and ways of thinking. The first dialog interface is a graph interface that enables learners to plot points and draw graphs on a two-dimensional plane. This interface is designed to encourage learners to use visualization tools and incorporate functional and statistical views. The second dialog interface enables learners to construct mathematical formulas and formulas expressed by words/phrases by a drag-and-drop operation. Our intention is to utilize them as instructional materials for encouraging learners to adopt mathematical ways of thinking, such as abstraction, symbolization, and quantification. We also discuss the possibility of constructing instructional strategies, which will help use these interfaces as design principles for developing gaming instructional materials.
