Abstract: Accessible games can enhance mathematics instruction for students at risk of failure. This poster session will demonstrate several ethnic games that were developed and researched with inclusive fourth grades. These games, adapted to teach mathematics, lend themselves to teaching basic math facts while allowing students to experience how children of other cultures spend their leisure time. This poster session demonstrates several of the ethnic games that were developed for use on the computer and used as accessible alternatives to the off-computer versions.
