CoDAC (Conditions and tools for Development of Arithmetic Competences) is a joint project betwen Kristianstad University and University of Gothenburg.
The project aims at investigating how children develop arithmetic comptence, especially basic number concepts, in interaction with peer and adults and with symbolic and material artefacts and to describe this development in terms of learning trajectories. Analytically, more specific targets are:
The computer game FINGU is a second-generation computer game developed within the CoDAC project, using state-of-the-art technology. It is specifically designed to enhance understanding of basic number concepts through emphasizing part-whole structuring of numbers. FINGU is designed to be used in home, pre-school or school settings, primarily targeting children in the age range 4-8 that have not developed fully functional number concepts.
