Abstract

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education continues to garner focus and attention from teachers, students, researchers, policymakers, and businesses due to the vast importance of technology in the world. The integration of STEM subjects has the potential to make learning relevant and more engaging for students, which can increase their mathematical knowledge. In this paper, I focus on integrated steM education through open-ended game-based learning within a technological context. Integrated steM education is the integration of STEM subjects with an explicit focus on mathematics. The possibilities for integrating mathematics and technology through open-ended game-based learning has increased in recent years. Recommendations for future work will be discussed.
