L'apprentissage par le jeu en mathématiques en maternelle

Abstract : By translating the french dictionnary Larousse, a game is a physical or intellectual non imposed and free activity, which the child engages in to have fun and to get pleasure from it. I am interested in learning through play in mathematics, so I asked myself "What games for which learning in kindergarten?" To answer this question, first, I did theoretical research on the definition of the game, its purposes, its organization, its benefits. Then, I carried out a research around the matches game for pupils of "moyenne section" and another research on the merchant game for pupils of "grande section". The matches game allows pupils to learn to list a collection and the merchant game teaches them to become aware of the equipotency of two collections. For these two studies, the results were satisfactory. Thus, this research comforted me in the idea that learning through play in kindergarten and in particular in mathematics is a major asset for pupils by combining education, instruction and fun.
