Abstract: Math Snacks Games are developed by utilizing best practices of teachers in grades 4-6, through experienced lesson delivery during summer math camps. Teachers are connected with students during summer camps to learn hands on Algebraic lessons and then play Math Snacks Games and incorporate their newly acquired strategies. These hands on experiences provide the Math Snacks team with observed research into the best practices for learning Early Algebra skills. As a result, further research is conducted and incorporated into developing playable games using similar online learning strategies.
