ab: Summary: The mat-rix-toe project utilizes a matrix-based game to deepen
studentsâ€™ understanding of linear algebra concepts and strengthen
studentsâ€™ ability to express themselves mathematically. The project
was administered in three classes using slightly different approaches,
each of which included some editing component to encourage the
improvement of the studentsâ€™ mathematical thinking and writing.
Differences in the implementation of the project illustrate the
benefits and drawbacks of various methods of editing in the mathematics
classroom and highlight recommendations for improvements in future
implementations of the project.
