Fostering Geometry Insight and Proof with Embodied Game Design

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Embodied cognition looks at how our bodies are a key component of what we think and provides a framework for design principles to create movement based video games. We developed The Hidden Village to explore how in-game actions (i.e., engaging  the body to explore geometric properties by enacting transformations of shape and space) may improve rapid, unconscious forms of reasoning, such as mathematical intuition, as well as slower, more deliberate forms of reasoning involved in valid geometry proof construction. Along with presenting our designs and early empirical findings, we wish to engage our audience in the powerful ways that motion-capture technologies can bring people in more direct physical contact with the imaginary objects and abstract ideas that make mathematics an elegant and creative discipline.
