Purpose: Math education traditionally has focused on fluency practice more than students building a deep understanding for the context for math in the real world, leading to a focus on finding the right answer rather than exploring the why or thinking creatively. In this project, the team will develop a prototype of a web-based intervention for grade 5 students to explore and learn mathematical concepts by creating stories focused on their relationships in a real-world context.
Project Activities: In Phase I, the project team will develop a prototype that will be an Artificial Intelligence program that guides students in writing stories to make connections between key mathematical concepts using examples from the real world. At the end of Phase I, a pilot study will engage 10 grade 5 classrooms including the educators and 250 students. Researchers will examine if the prototype functions as intended, if students are able to easily follow the instructions and write a mathematical story, whether the prototype increases students' interest in math and deepens understanding on the topic of fractions.
