The students in control class was not as motivated as those in the experimental class, they held their focus on what they had to learn in shorter duration than those in experimental group. The students in the experimental class were more active in learning the materials and helped each other to master the materials in order to win the game. The students were more motivated in learning the materials so that they were be able to comprehend the materials better and faster. The students were more motivated because there was a game in which they got a reward if they won the game, and since the success of a team was affected by the performance of each member of the team, the members in the team helped each other to master the materials given.
