Abstract

This thesis explores the creation and evolution of an original calculus board game. To chart the evolution of the game, participant feedback was gathered over multiple developmental game phases. To see how well the board game could teach calculus, pre and post test data was gathered during later game development phases to see if individual participants showed any improvements in their abilities to solve calculus problems. The results showed minor improvements in calculus abilities regardless of prior calculus knowledge. Further game testing needs to be done to fully evaluate the effectiveness of this calculus board game.
