Google Teacher Academy

Gurgaon, India
December 4, 2014

Using game theory to create a mathematics game for an entire unit on Space and Shape, the Year 5 students 
participated in a 7 level plus the final boss battle for domination.  The game was hosted on a Google Site, included embedded Google Docs with activities as well as YouTube videos. The students work in teams (classes) to gain points which were recorded in Google Sheets. In addition, interactive graphs were generated from this assessment to help motivate students to continue to progress. Students could showcase their understanding in a variety of ways and utilise the GAFE products to help share their learning.
