Let’s focus on the meaning of love as a verb: to hold dear, take pleasure in, or thrive in (Merriam-Webster, n.d.). Sadly, far too few students love mathematics and instead feel anxiety or other negative emotions. We must do better. In this month of love, let’s focus on ways we can ensure that each and every child has the opportunities to

## An Intervention Including an Online Game to Improve Grade 6 Students' Performance in Early Algebra

This study investigated whether an intervention including an online game contributed to 236 Grade 6 students' performance in early algebra, that is, solving problems with covarying quantities. An exploratory quasi-experimental study was conducted with a pretest-posttest-control-group design. Students in the experimental group were asked to solve at home a number of problems by playing an online game. Although boys outperformed girls in early algebra performance on the pretest as well as on the posttest, boys and girls profited equally from the intervention. Implications of these results for educational practice are discussed.
