Mathematics Games

Question

Hello!

I am writing an assignment on Numeracy in KS2 and would like some help. I am specifically looking at the use of Loop Cards (devised by Adrian Pinel) as a tool to help improve the mental recall of number bonds up to 20 in my year 3 class. Could you direct me to some relevant reading on the use of loopcards in Numeracy, the work of Adrian Pinel, the issue of learning Number bonds and also the advantages/ disadvantages of using game techniques in the KS2 setting?

I think that some of the ATM journals may be able to help with research into Loop cards but am unsure how to access these.

Thank you very much for your help!

Response

There doesn't appear to be a great deal of academic literature focusing specifically on loop cards, however, Adrian Pinel is well published as you can see by the journal articles and conference papers below that I found by doing an author search with his name. 
The British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics has a few published papers authored by Pinel - see links below.  He has also written a number of books focusing on learning strategies in mathematics.

I also include a previous E-librarian question about the use of games in teaching primary mathematics.

For access to any journals that your library doesn't subscribe to, I suggest you ask about interlibrary loans as they may be able to order individual articles for you instead.

I hope this helps.

‘THE MATHS TASK' - A REPORT ON THE FIRST YEAR OF A LONGITUDINAL STUDY
"In response to a requirement to identify applicants to ITE who are lacking certain defined qualities, a mathematics task was designed. It has now been trialled for 8 months and indications are generally positive. It has three parts - video-, game- and misconceptions-based. The first part - video-based - is outlined here and some of the emerging illustrative data considered. However there are many questions arising from this task that need to be addressed longer term by the project team. As this is intended to become a longitudinal study with several aspects, these questions will be further addressed in later papers by the team."
