Abstract: This study examines the effect of small-group game play before and after a Number Sense Test (NST). Fifty-seven 7-year old children were assigned into two conditions: (a) NST-Game Play, in which students sat for the NST before game play; or (b) Game Play-NST, in which students experienced game play before sitting for the NST. Findings suggested that Game Play-NST students outperformed the NSTGame Play students in number sense performance. Having Game Play-NST experience appeared to be more effective in enhancing students’ performance in number sense.
