COSTA, Raimundo José Macário; SOARES, Adriana Benevides  and  LIMA, Cabral. Jogar e aprender: o jogo por computador no ensino contemporâneo da matemática. Psicol. Am. Lat. [online]. 2007, n.9. ISSN 1870-350X.

This work tries to subsidize the process of passage from arithmetical reasoning to algebraic reasoning, in children aged 7-8 years, so that it occurs as naturally as possible. A study on the use of new computer technologies, which can allow cognitive gains in teaching-learning processes on elementary algebra, is presented. Among these new technologies, we included the use of educational computer games, and we carried out a survey with students from this age group. Data analysis and perspectives of significant yields are presented as well.

Keywords : Algebraic and Arithmetical Reasoning; Cognitive Gain; Electronic Games; Computer Science Applied to Teaching Processes.
