Abstract
The web-based game, Numbershire II, will include modules to support students with or at-risk for disabilities in learning 2nd grade level mathematics, as defined by Common Core State Standards, including fluency with place value ideas, foundations of multiplication, and procedural fluency with multi-digit operations. In the narrative-based game, each student will build and maintain an idyllic Renaissance-style village by applying math concepts. Tasks will include setting goals, advancing to more challenging levels, and competing for awards. The games will be motivating and engaging, and will support learners with or at risk for disabilities by providing explicit, systematic, and frequent instruction, differential learning pathways, and goal setting and formative assessment-based performance monitoring. A teacher management system will support professional development and will produce reports to guide instruction.
