What is it?

Happy Maths is a programme for primary schools to engage pupils with educational digital games for Maths. It is a project of the School of Computer Science at TU Dublin.

The project aims to evaluate the potential of digital games to support mathematics learning. The project seeks to investigate the impact that games can have on teachers’ practice, students’ maths performance, and their levels of mathematics anxiety, a condition of negative emotional reactions that affects learning and self-confidence. The project includes the implementation of two games developed by our team: Once Upon a Maths, an online graphical adventure mixing History and Maths, and Seven Spells, a digital card game stimulating problem-solving. Both games were designed based on 5 years of research into STEM game-based learning and the feedback of 700+ teachers.
