    Abstract

    The purpose of the thesis Teachers' attitudes towards the use of didactic computer games for learning multiplication is to inform the teachers of selected didactic games for the classes of multiplication table and ascertain their views to use them in mathematics. The presence of the multiplication table in the school curriculum is presented in the theoretical part. Its introduction into the lessons and ways of refreshing are presented as well. A chapter discussing information and communication technology is included. In that chapter one is able to learn more about including ICT in lessons, trends and usage during classes, as well as of the usage of ICT at mathematics. In the chapter discussing games (where the subject of the discussion is a game in general), didactic games, and their usage at the classes of mathematics the computer games are taken into consideration. Especially educational computer games are presented into greater detail. The theoretical part is concluded with the chapter discussing computer games for the classes of multiplication table and specific Slovenian and foreign web-sites where games with multiplication tables can be found are mentioned there. Six games are chosen and described. One of them is Slovenian and the rest are foreign. The results of the research that took place with six selected teachers from different Slovenian primary schools are presented in the empirical part. It was carried out with the help of a structured interview. At first, the games were presented to the teachers. Secondly, they tested them and according to that experience they answered the questions. The results of the research present the standpoint of the teachers regarding the usage of computer games at classes when multiplication table is studied and their professional opinion on the presented games. According to the results of the research the teachers are enthusiastic about the computer games. However, because the ICT equipment in the schools is poor, they cannot use them extensively.
