Interactive math games do not replace good teaching or classroom work, but math games do provide children with enjoyable, free, and readily available enrichment opportunities to gain mathematical fluency and automaticity in acquisition of basic mathematical skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

The research on educational gaming finds that the use of computer games in educational settings has a positive effect on academic achievement (reading comprehension, algebra, and decoding), on attitudes toward learning, and on self-concept, in comparison to traditional instruction. Studies have found that games offer immediate feedback, increase active learner participation, reinforce knowledge, and influence attitudinal changes.Educational gaming favors the development of complex thinking skills and problem solving, planning, and self-regulated learning. Furthermore, the studies show that the impact of the game on learning depends on the degree of interaction between the user and the system. The **power **behind games is in the **concentrated attention **of the user to an environment that continuously **reinforces knowledge, ****scaffolds learning**, provides leveled, appropriate challenges, and provides **context to the learning of content. **
