Splish Splash MathBy Creamer, Jane; ConnSENSE Bulletin, Vol. 4, No. 5
Publication Date: February 2004
Article discusses the author’s use of Splish Splash Math in her elementary self-contained special education classroom. Splish Splash Math is a math tutorial program that incorporates two different games: (1) the Equation Game, and (2) What’s My Rule?, both of which focus on the teaching of simple mathematical rules and equations. One of the author’s favorite features of the program is that the problems are not timed, which makes Splish Splash Math ideal for special education classrooms. The author contends that her students were able to use the program to gain an understanding of “how many” in a group of objects, and learned to understand the difference between addition and subtraction. The students also learned how to connect numeric words with numbers. The program features a built-in student progress application for instructors, which could greatly facilitate the organization process. The author enjoyed the program and looks forward to using it in her lesson plans throughout the academic year.
