This chapter presents the literature reappraisal on the country of survey. It gives an penetration or reviews old and bing plants that have been conducted in the same country. This chapter is organized into nine subdivisions. The first subdivision gives an debut about educational games and other learning techniques. Meanwhile, the 2nd sheds visible radiation on the overview of this survey. The 3rd subdivision discusses the issues sing the instruction of mathematics. The 4th subdivision shows the importance of games in instruction. The 5th subdivision high spots the issues sing mathematics and Jeopardy. The 6th subdivision describes the relation between math and Jeopardy. The 7th subdivision introduces the self efficiency theory that is adopted in the instruction of mathematics. The 8th subdivision reports the metacognition accomplishments in learning math. Finally, the 9th subdivision studies other related and old plants.
Games are defined as activities supplying amusement or amusement ; most people use them to go through clip, while some truly make usage of games for educational issues to assist pupils increase their degree of apprehension every bit good as better the cognition they have in a practical manner. This helps them to hold a clear thought of how to cover with different state of affairss or amounts in the simplest signifier whatsoever. A mathematician positions games as theoretical accounts of competitory state of affairss that identify interested parties and stipulate regulations regulating all facets of the competitions, used in game theory to find the optimum class of action for interested parties. Changeless alterations in society demand alterations in educational attacks. Developments in educational engineering, nevertheless, do non diminish or in any manner affect the importance of an pedagogue ‘s function in pupils ‘ acquisition ( Sezgin, 2003 ) . Part of a module ‘s function in pupils ‘ instruction is to find an appropriate instruction scheme that would guarantee maximal acquisition and development among pupils. An mixture of schemes is available to learning staff aside from the traditional talk. Use of these schemes is of import since their entreaty varies to diverse pupils ( Brigham & A ; Rowles, 2004 ) . It has been accepted widely that pupils demonstrate fluctuations in larning manners ( Sadler-Smith, 1997 ) .
Traditional methods of learning simple pupils consist chiefly of teacher-student acquisition. The conventional ways such as working with text editions, quizzes and set plants are based on pupils ‘ ability and desire to self-regulate. Lecture-based airing of information, although time-efficient, makes pupils inactive and sedentary scholars. Background of the subject and constructs are delivered by the instructor, and pupils become contented with what is provided to them ( Baines & A ; Slutsky, 2009 ; Cashin, 1990 ) .
Non-traditional methods such as use of algorithms, instance surveies, duologues, presentations and educational games, on the other manus, transform passiveness among pupils into active and independent acquisition. These methods try to link the subject to real-life state of affairss doing it relevant to pupils. The ability to personally associate to the subject increases concept keeping in comparing to memorisation ( Ambrosio & A ; Kastberg, 1995 ) .A This concurs with Confucius who one time said, “ I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, involve me and I understand ” . In non-traditional methods, the instructor is non the exclusive beginning of cognition and information. Student ‘s feedbacks and input is as of import and enlightening every bit good ( Rubin, 1999 ) .
2.2 Educational Games
The outgrowth of alternate and non-traditional instruction methods that employs active engagement, feedback, complexness, repeat, emotions, physiologic events and psychomotor ability, every bit good as the increasing organic structure of research on the effectivity of non-traditional instruction schemes in different teaching-learning state of affairss in the schoolroom, have opened up the chance for instructors to use non-traditional instruction schemes in concurrence with the traditional methods of instruction. Other learning methods use a more participatory attack between the instructor and the pupils. Alternate learning methods that are more widely used now include usage of algorithm, instance surveies and presentation.
An algorithm is a bit-by-bit process of work outing a job. It is a flow of instructions where each measure is answerable by a ‘yes ‘ or ‘no ‘ and enhances pupils ‘ problem-solving abilities. Arguments and structured contentions provide pupils an chance to discourse a subject based on their ain apprehension, therefore heightening concluding, judgements, logical and analytical accomplishments although it can make struggles of sentiment among pupils. Case studies/presentation, on the other manus, is an in-depth analysis of a real-life experience necessitating a great sum of clip for readying, and unequal cognition prior to presentation may ensue in hapless acquisition among other pupils. Demonstration is demoing how a procedure or technique is done. This scheme utilizes psychomotor accomplishments and depends on pupils ‘ acquisition abilities. It requires faculty supervising and handiness of equipments.
There are besides comparatively new and non-traditional schemes in learning that are fast gaining popularity as instructors are invariably looking for new ways of showing their lessons ( Swan & A ; Simpson, 2003 ) . One such method is the usage of educational games. An educational game is an activity set in a schoolroom scene governed by specific regulations where participants compete against each other utilizing cognition and accomplishment to accomplish a coveted terminal. The application of this non-traditional method can be a positive, gratifying, prosecuting and synergistic for reenforcing information. Student-to-student acquisition is said to increase motive and better active acquisition, critical thought and construct keeping ( Brigham & A ; Rowles, 2004 ) .
The very nature of playing is educational ( Oppenheim, 1984 ) . Harmonizing to Maxwell ( 1982 ) , games are powerful inducers of academic capableness ; nevertheless, they have really small acknowledgment and application in current course of study. Educational games like picture, online and simulation in a schoolroom scene, ab initio captures pupils ‘ attending and provides an enthusiastic and gratifying scene for larning. It allows them to larn and develop critical thought in a stress-free environment where inquiries can be addressed more readily. Most educational games are based on popular game shows like what ‘s that Intervention based from Family Feud, Wheel of Fortune and Math Jeopardy based on Jeopardy, while some are based on board games like Bingo, crossword mystifiers, ticktacktoe, sudoku and name games ( Glendon & A ; Ulrich, 2005 ) .
Kolb ( 1984 ) further categorised educational games harmonizing to their maps. He divided them into `games for self-analysis` , `games for communicating and collaboration` and `system games` . Games for soul-searching provide pupils an penetration about other people, state of affairss or jobs. Games for communicating and coaction allow pupils to work together to accomplish a common end. Communication plays a critical function in this class since it requires pupils to propose and collate their thoughts. Last, a system game allows pupils to understand how a system maps as a whole. It provides them an thought that a system is composed of, in different parts, each every bit of import as the other.
For over a decennary now, educational games have been utilized by pedagogues as an alternate agencies of learning. Assorted surveies have shown that the effects of educational games in pupil acquisition were largely positive and enhance motive for farther development ( Leach & A ; Sugarman, 2006 ) . Ury and King ( 1995 ) described how library instructions were reinforced in freshmen pupils at Owen Library in Northwest Missouri State University by playing a Jeopardy-based game or Name Game at the terminal of the orientation. At Simmons College, librarians let freshers play Jeopardy games to supply information about services offered at the library in a merriment, stress-free and accessible manner ( Krajewski & A ; Piroli, 2002 ) .
In an article from WR News, a plan called Arithmetickles, combined from words Arithmetic and tickles, was being implemented in Park Groove Elementary School. The said plan purposes to transfuse the thought that “ math can be fun ” in kids ‘s heads. As portion of the plan, they incorporated mathematics into a game of ticktacktoe. Questions, trifle and math jobs are asked and whoever replies it right gets to take ‘x ‘ or ‘o ‘ . Furthermore, a instructor in Florida battles with pupil ‘s engagement, doing her category interesting, and larning accomplishment of her pupils in vocabulary. However, when she started utilizing games as her attack in learning vocabulary, her pupils became enthusiastic on the capable affair. They even looked frontward to each lesson, and finally, their classs increased ( Baines & A ; Slutsky, 2009 ) .
Research surveies are changeless in exemplifying that pupils ‘ do profit from educational games, non merely in footings of motive and overall acquisition experience every bit good as its capacity to turn to pupil diverseness ( Randell & A ; Cripe, 1999 ) . Assorted researches besides show that an pedagogue who uses educational games in learning enhances concept keeping among their pupils ( Boettcher et al. , 1994 ) .

2.3 Teaching Mathematicss
Mathematicss pedagogues frequently teach undertakings covering foreign land due to alterations in the course of study. This state of affairs is of common happening that math pedagogue ‘s face, and planning plays a critical function in challenges like this. Educators nem con agree that planning is an indispensable portion of instruction and straight affects pupils ‘ larning patterned advance. Clark and Yinger ( 1987 ) described the maps of planning as a agency to distill vagueness and supply a sense of way. It besides allows instructors to direct the flow of information and eventually, create possible acquisition processs wherein pupils may take part. A survey conducted for Mathematics instructors in school twelvemonth 2007-2008 found out that 76 % of instructors arrange and select an attack to utilize and fix equipments to be utilized in the topic. Furthermore, 86 % of instructors relate their capable affair to real- life state of affairss to increase apprehension and motive. It besides showed that 88 % of instructors utilize activities that promote pupil engagement although merely 50 % usage alternate methods in instruction ( Sengul, 2009 ) .
Many research workers have attempted to understand that the debut of games into the acquisition of mathematics is characterized as a combination of phantasy, challenge and wonder. It is besides viewed as a degree of battle which is described as ‘flow ‘ where participants become unmindful to distractions around them and increases their degree of concentration, this leads to a disregard of other activities frequently assumed to be automatically more worthy. Many other research workers see games as inherently valuable taking to development of a scope of accomplishments and competencies that may reassign to other societal and work-related utilizations of digital engineering.
Games take up a big sum of clip which could be spent on more worthy activities such as instruction and larning with merriment but the advantages could be good specified in the betterment of pupils academically, because games during larning promotes the degree of attending and concentration which instructors, parents and policy shapers wished kids use during larning. Therefore, the instruction sector in Saudi Arabia needs to larn and utilize games in order to heighten proper acquisition procedures.
2.4 Games for Educational Purposes
There are two major cardinal subjects common to the development of games for educational intents. They are stated as follows:
The ability of games to actuate scholars utilizing certain equipment to do learning merriment.
A belief that larning through making which is in games offers a powerful learning tool.
Most edutainment has failed to recognize outlooks either because:
The games have been excessively simplistic in comparing to category work or acquisition.
The undertaking is insistent which means it is based on continually making amounts and therefore rapidly becomes deadening.
The undertaking is ill designed and does non back up progressive apprehension.
The mark audience becomes cognizant that it is being coerced in “ acquisition ” in perchance a patronizing mode.
The mark of any activities is badly limited within the game, which concerns certain accomplishments or accretion of homogeneous content.
The argument on doing larning mathematics fun frequently assumes that pupils do non bask larning ; yet, much research grounds contradicts this, reasoning that pupils do bask larning when they have a sense of their ain patterned advance and where the acquisition is relevant and appropriate. This focal point on merriment and games in larning may in-fact be a ruddy herring. Alternatively, it might be deserving returning to some early analysis that describes the pleasances of games played as a flow. The conditions likely to bring on “ flow “ province are characterized by Malone ( 1980 ) as:
The activity should be structured in a manner that the participant can increase or diminish the degree of challenges faced in order to fit precisely, personal accomplishments with the demands for action.
There should be clear standards for public presentation i.e. a participant should be able to measure how good or how ill he or she is making at any clip.
The activity should supply concrete feedbacks to the participants so that they can state how good they are run intoing the standards of public presentation.
It should simplify the scholar ‘s activities along with the perceptual degree by custom-making the internal and external scholar abilities.
It should supply a different scope of challenges that affect scholar ‘s public presentation by holding a wide scope of challenges and perchance several qualitatively.
Assorted signifiers of research have been carried out by legion research workers on the motive of larning through the usage of games and one of the earliest and most cited research work was done by Thomas Malone & A ; Lepper ( 1987 ) who identified three chief ways in which games were able to actuate participants. These were categorized as “ phantasy ” , “ challenges ” and “ wonder ” .
Presumably, the fact that something does go on encourages participants to continue and the quality of what happens in footings of users ‘ battle is the factor that keeps them playing, and at the same clip larning wholly. A cardinal construct that often emerges in the literature is that of “ flow ” which was foremost discussed by Csikszentmihalyi ( 1990 ) . Debates on the issue of “ flow ” centres around how the “ province ” can be created in an person and mensurating how it might do a individual more receptive to having cognition, groking and utilizing educational- based content and accomplishments.
In order to understand the possible function of mainstream games in back uping acquisition, what is needed most is to cognize what acquisition is, and how the usage of games could further and increase larning possibilities. This research views larning through version of games as instead a procedure which leads to alter in behaviour, alteration in ways of thought, accomplishment of personal potency or development of capacity to run within peculiar communities. The tabular array below which was illustrated and adapted from Smith ( 1999 ) defines the cardinal conflict lines in this research.

2.5 Learning Mathematicss
Mathematicss is a topic in which most kids take pleasance in. However, many of the pupils view mathematics as a patterned advance of challenges and obstructions that they have to travel through with ardor and intent. Still, many would fear this topic because they view it as a dissatisfactory and undistinguished experience. Mathematicss fails to do kids experience successful in their surveies ( Gates, 2001 ) . Most pupils dislike mathematics for the undermentioned grounds:
Previous negative experience with mathematics ;
Fear of perpetrating mistakes in computations ;
Trouble in understanding constructs, among others. There are several grounds why a pupil may experience that he/she is a failure in mathematics. The function of the instructor comes in because he/she has to work out the pupils ‘ job and assist them through their success. Students should be motivated and challenged by stating them that mathematics is a fantastic topic and it is a portion of day-to-day life.
Different issues are confronting pupils during the acquisition procedure which is assigned to the instructors every bit good as the instructor has to work out the jobs and work toward a pupil ‘s success. During the learning procedure of mathematics, instructors need to interact with the pupils, and utilize easy/ simple methods to do pupils motivated in larning the mathematics concepts.A Students need to be motivated and challenged. A The key to success is to demo the pupils how fantastic mathematics truly is and that mathematics is in our day-to-day lives and we can non acquire off from it. A First, the instructor must love or hold a passion for mathematics and exhibit enthusiasm to their pupils. This is because the pleasance which few Numberss of pupils find in larning mathematics stands to be the major job that bulk of pupils face because they could non get by with the memorizing of expressions and stairss to be taken when work outing mathematical jobs. These groups of pupils find it as a topic that is run outing, brain-tasking, and takes a batch of clip thought of possible solutions or results and after this is done, they still have the uncertainty on the replies which they had come up with, if it is right or incorrect. The fright of non acquiring the right replies makes the pupils ferocious and non truly interested in making much when they are in a mathematics category. This makes the procedure of larning mathematics a major job in the pupils ‘ attitude towards larning mathematics.
Another major job faced while larning mathematics is the manner of administrating the topic to the pupil by the instructor. Different instructors follow different attacks which might be confounding to the pupil ‘s ability of comprehension. In visible radiation of this, pupils who had being taught of a peculiar attack to work out a amount and afterwards mingle with a friend from another school who has another method of attack, go baffled and less interested to give full engagement when the category is being taught.
Furthermore, larning in a mathematics category is considered deadening by some pupils because the capable affair is non good simplified in a manner the pupils can easy understand and enable them to make more pattern by them after being taught in the schoolroom. Therefore, bulk of pupils ever hope that mathematics is removed from the schoolroom agenda so that they can experience free and non acquire stressed out seeking to work out a job they do non truly cognize if it is solved right. Most pupils fear that they will ne’er be able to understand the topic, and thereby lose all involvement about the topic.
2.6 Math and Jeopardy
Associating mathematics jobs to real-world state of affairss helps pupils connect mathematics to their ain involvements and concerns, and motivates them to utilize mathematics in activities outside school. It enables them to bring forth their ain mathematical jobs based on present subjects or single experience, and happen a solution on their ain. In this scheme, passiveness in acquisition has been transformed. The personal connexion established by the pupil to the topic, provides an chance to develop active acquisition and better critical thought autonomously ( Olive, 2005 ) .
A version of educational Jeopardy called Math Jeopardy is used specifically for measuring mathematics accomplishments every bit good as in carry oning mathematics drills. The game consists of math-based inquiries, trifle and job resolution. The instructor will take the first inquiry and any squad may reply. The first squad to reply the inquiry right gets to take the following inquiry. Each inquiry answered corresponds to a point and inquiries range from easy to hard. The harder the inquiry, the bigger the tantamount point. Integrating mathematics in a game of Jeopardy holds a pupil ‘s attending better than talks ( Spitzer & A ; Roddick, 2008 ) .
The usage of games in teaching-learning environments has been reported to better acquisition accomplishments and larning results. Learning accomplishment is most normally measured through construct callback by agencies of drills and trials ( Prince, 2004 ) . Learning results, on the other manus, is multifaceted and include cognitive accomplishment, metacognitive consciousness and motive ( Ke, 2008 ) . Cognitive accomplishment is defined as mathematics accomplishments gained by the pupils. Metacognitive consciousness, on the other manus, is cognition and ordinance of knowledge or the manner the pupils learn. Furthermore, motive is the agencies of delving the pupils ‘ involvements in larning mathematics ( Ke, 2008 ) . All these larning results were measured by Ke ( 2008 ) in relation to the effectivity of computing machine games in larning mathematics.
Some early childhood instructors find mathematics as a hard capable affair to learn ( Copley & A ; Padron, 1999 ) . Harmonizing to Lee & A ; Ginsburg ( 2007 ) , a figure of pedagogues believe that mathematics should be taught to immature kids by agencies of playing games and other twenty-four hours to twenty-four hours activities. Math Jeopardy is a common educational game that is being used by pedagogues. In Spitzer & A ; Roddick ( 2007 ) , Mr. Hammond, a 5th class mathematics instructor used Math Jeopardy as a agency to reexamine for a trial, a fluctuation from traditional methods of showing a subject and measuring how much his pupils have learned. Associating mathematics to real-life state of affairss and synergistic games like Jeopardy, motivates and increases consciousness of the relevancy of the topic even outside school and non-curricular activities.
Students are able to do their ain mathematics jobs based on their personal experiences every bit good. These student-made jobs can be used for reexamining and on the scrutiny itself. In this technique, the pupil is take parting and pupils end product is being put to utilize every bit good. It ‘s like hitting two birds with one rock ( Olive, 2005 ) . Ultimately, the Math Jeopardy Game promotes pupils ‘ thought accomplishments, teamwork, individualism and pride in acquisition ( Bjorn, 1994 ) .
2.7 Self-Efficacy Theory
This theory is about a individual ‘s belief about his or her ability to form and put to death classs of action necessary to accomplish a end. Because of its consequence on personal pick, motive, attempt, and persisAtence, self-efficacy has terrible deductions for single behaviors ( Ormrod, 2006 ) . Bandura ( 1988 ) has addressed the chief factors that affect pupils ‘ feelings of positive self-efficacy. They are:
Lock-step sequences of direction that may do some kids to acquire lost along the manner,
Ability groupings that farther decrease the self-efficacy of those in lower ranks, and
Competitive patterns in which many pupils are doomed to failure from the start.
2.8 Metacognitive Skills
Metacognitive accomplishments refer to how scholars understand procedure information and work out different larning issues. It is about their ain acquisition procedures ( Halpern, 1996 ) . Metacognitive and cognitive techniques in stand foring the cognition behaviour may overlap with different external and internal techniques such as oppugning which reflects the respondents or scholar ‘s behaviour for certain points. Metacognitive scheme customizes the behavioural issues for larning and work outing jobs which correlated in the intent of utilizing that scheme. The significance of utilizing both cognitive and metacognitive schemes in different measurings are closely intertwined and are dependent upon each other, any effort to analyze one without admiting the other would non supply an equal image ( Halpern, 1996 ) .
2.9 Related Surveies
As kids learn basic accomplishments and cardinal cognition via playing games, hence, games in the academic course of study provides an effectual and gratifying agencies of circulating information. When games are incorporated into a treatment, educators no longer necessitate to hale pupils into take parting ( Baines & A ; Slutsky, 2009 ) . Harmonizing to a recent survey, 60 % of pupils recognize educational games as equivalent to talk in supplying information, and developing accomplishments and techniques ( Anderson, 2005 ) . Initially, educational games hold pupils ‘ attending better than conventional talks. Associating the subject to a game induces wonder and motivates pupils to cognize more, independently or non.
A important learning experience ensures teacher-student and student-student engagement. Educational games create more countries for pupil engagement. It provides chances for pupils to believe and use cognition into pattern at the same time ( Gifford, 2001 ) . It besides creates a stress-free environment for larning and development, and reinforces information in an advanced manner ( Leach & A ; Sugarman, 2006 ; Pennington & A ; Hawley, 1995 ) . Games as an instructional method spring instructors an chance to show instantaneous feedback or reaction, and immediate elucidation of constructs and theories ( Oblinger, 2003 ) .
A instance survey besides stated that mathematics games promote positive attitudes towards the topic ; nevertheless were non able to heighten cognitive and metacognitive accomplishments in pupils ( Ke, 2008 ) . Harmonizing to Dempsey, Rasmussen, and Lucassen ( 1996 ) , there is no direct relation affecting cognitive acquisition and mathematics games.
A survey by Andrew & A ; Simon ( 2006 ) stated the considerable enthusiastic ideas for optimising the digital educational games paradigms to the acquisition Fieldss and other educational sectors. This survey described different attacks for accomplishing integrating that shows the troubles and failings in associating the game-playing activity to transferable societal or conceptual procedures and accomplishments. This survey has identified the success factors for incorporating the digital gambling in the acquisition Fieldss based on ‘dialogue game ‘ attack to larning in internet related to Wittgenstein ‘s impression of a ‘language game ‘ that seeks to explicitly associate game-playing activity to the development of generic dialogical and concluding accomplishments that lead to improved conceptual apprehension and collaborative cognition polish. Different possible users have been selected to measure the proposed technique based on the selected attack. This survey has applied a socio-cognitive tool called InterLoc that organizes, mediates, constructions and scaffolds educational duologue games ( Andrew & A ; Simon, 2006 ) .
Another survey by Birgitte & A ; Bente ( 2007 ) reported the utility of utilizing the planetary game constructions for obtaining better acquisition. The survey focused on linguistic communication acquisition, and learning pupils how to larn in more originative ways followed by pupil ‘s behavior for larning. This survey proposed a theoretical statement for utilizing the planetary game theories in easing the acquisition procedure on pupils. In add-on, the demands of suggesting this theoretical model was modelled on positions of linguistic communication instruction and acquisition. Finally, the survey applied this theory in the development of the paradigm of the digitally based educational platform called “ Mingoville ” ( Birgitte & A ; Bente, 2007 ) .
A survey by Aida & A ; Wan ( 2009 ) stated the effectivity of utilizing motive for work outing mathematical jobs. The chief purpose of this survey was to place pupils ‘ degree of attempt and pupils ‘ degree of motive in finding the mathematical jobs which differed by gender, current cumulative class point norm ( CGPA ) and twelvemonth of survey. A questionnaire was administered in this survey for informations assemblage intents. The survey revealed a important difference in overall motive tonss between the female and male respondents. Additionally, a important positive correlativity was found between attempt, self-efficacy, and overall motive with pupils ‘ overall academic accomplishment ( Aida & A ; Wan, 2009 ) .
Christa ( 2006 ) reported the class system for forming the metacognitive activities. This survey presented the contemplation of activities which affects pupils understanding within several metacognitive activities. This survey adopted an essay test for mensurating the contemplation of pupil ‘s activities during the learning procedure. The findings of this survey demonstrated that it proved to be utile to see different niceties of contemplation ( Christa, 2006 ) .
Mohini & A ; Tan ( 2005 ) investigated the demands of work outing mathematical jobs with differing met cognitive behaviours. In this research, a instance survey was used for finding the metacognitive type and form in usage and the associated accomplishment in warranting the mathematical demands. This survey applied existence metacognitive behavior elements such as ; propose a program, assess trouble, reappraisal advancement, acknowledge mistake, new development and self-questioning. The survey found that there is a important relationship between the types of metacognitive behaviors and the public presentation of pupils along with the procedure of job resolution ( Mohini & A ; Tan, 2005 ) .
In another survey, Elmar & A ; Christa ( 2004 ) addressed the success factors in developing a theoretical theoretical account for mathematical job work outing. They developed a theoretical theoretical account which has been adopted into four learning scenes. These scenes focused on the issues of dianoetic lesson civilization, and pupils representations of other relevant issues ( Elmar & A ; Christa, 2004 ) . Their survey besides aimed to analyse constituents of metacognition for certain mathematical processs which helped to understand mathematical jobs in a more meaningful manner.
Finally, a survey by Andre ( 1996 ) measured the degrees of occupation satisfaction and motive. This survey employed a study technique for roll uping informations in a sample of 50 instructors. Experience Sampling Method ( ESM ) was used for choosing the instructors. This survey found that occupation satisfaction and motive related strongly with duty degrees, gender, capable, age, old ages of learning experience, and activity ( Andre, 1996 ) .
Educational games are being incorporated in about every country of academy. In simple course of study to higher instruction, from library orientation, medical and nursing constructs, psychological science, vocabulary, history, and mathematics. Inventions in learning methods have come a long manner from chalk and board talks. Student engagement, pupil input during treatment, feedbacks and student-to-student acquisition are given more value now than earlier. Changeless alterations in course of study are met with the outgrowth of non-traditional methods of circulating information and guaranting better larning experience both for instructors and pupils. Effectss of non-traditional methods are widely accepted and easy increasing in application. Therefore, the current survey enterprises to measure the effects of Math Jeopardy on the accomplishment and larning results of pupils in Saudi Arabia.
