As our world becomes increasingly technological, students are becoming further behind in programming. Younger kid’s mind frame tends to better learn by playing computer games rather than being taught vocally. The purpose of this research is to innovate the idea of using educational video games in the classroom to teach mathematics. By doing this it allows learning to be more interesting and fun for younger kids. We decided to create a video game with Raspberry Pi and Scratch that could help kid’s pre-k to 5th grade learn their multiplications. Scratch helps reinforce computer programming in a productive and easy way to learn coding.
