Project Title MIND Card
Project Category Innovation
Abstract MIND Card is a card game that is played with specially printed mathematics deck. The finding from TIMSS and PISA shows that one of the major attributes contributes to high failure rate of mathematics assessment is the weakness in arithmetic. Hence, the MIND Card is introduced to improve students’ understanding in basic mathematical operations. The MIND Card consists of the following cards: (i) numbers (0 to 9), (ii) operations (+, - , x, ÷), equal sign (=), and (iv) magic (replace any card (i)-(iii)). The game can be played by a minimum of 2 players. Each player will be given a certain number of cards (4 cards for beginner level). The players will take turn to draw a new card. This card can be either replacing an existing card or discarded. The winner is the player who is first able to match or arrange all the cards into a correct mathematics statement (for example in beginner level, 3 – 2 = 1). The main advantages of the MIND Card are: (i) promotes higher order thinking (HOTS) through multiple solving strategies (for example, 3 – 2 = ?, or ? – 2 = 3), and (ii) meets the learning ability of the player group by adjusting the number of cards. The main impact of MIND Card is supported by many studies where education games have evidences of helping students to get significant improvement in learning. MIND Card has great potential to be commercialized at low price especially to the primary students.
