This study monitored four third grade students who used iPad games to study multiplication facts for seven weeks. They took a survey at the beginning and end of the study to assess their attitude toward school, studying, and math in order to determine whether an attitude change took place throughout the course of events. The students also participated in a timed multiplication test with eighty-one questions at the beginning and took the same test at the end of the seven-week period. I met with the group twice weekly during the school day to play multiplication practice games. The group consisted of two boys and two girls at a private school in Fayetteville, Arkansas. They were chosen to participate in this study by their classroom teacher because of they demonstrated need in the areas of study skills and multiplication.
