This article describes a pilot study of the theoretical thinking of primary school students in conditions of educational cases solving. The cases are based on the math concept of the multiplicity of numbers. The study hypothesizes that students can transfer the solving principle of a mathematic case to a game case in specially organized conditions of educational activity. The experiment is based on our special developmental method “The Train”. The study involved 10 children aged from 8 to 10 years from Moscow city School No. 1505 “Preobrazhenskaya”. The main characteristics of the behavior and strategies of students in the framework of the gameplay are revealed. The article describes the phenomena that testify to the development of the foundations of the theoretical thinking of primary school students in the context of educational activities using special computer methodology, and it also outlines the prospect of the further research.
