Motion Math - 10 views

    "The Motion Math game follows a star trying to return to its home in a far-away galaxy. Moving up through different levels motivates a player to keep playing and keep learning, while bonus levels practice an important variation on the number line theme - is one fraction more or less than another?"

Design of Trigonometry Apps for Vocational Education - 7 views

  •  
    Abstract: "How can smartphones apps enrich the learning of mathematics
    in vocational education? This article examines how
    mathematics teaching can be enriched by apps using smartphone
    sensors such as gyroscope, compass, camera, and
    touch screen in a gaming context.
    An iterative and participatory design process involving two
    classes of carpentry students from different vocational colleges
    resulted in two highly successful and course-relevant
    games based on trigonometry. Each game consists of
    quests and missions whose successful completion unlocks
    more theoretical multiple-choice exercises for the classroom.
    The combination of competition to unlock exercises,
    competition for placing on the high-score list, and physical
    activity proved very motivating for the students and was
    also approved by their teachers.
    In this article we describe our design principles, the overall
    game architecture and the games themselves. We talk
    about our experience in implementing our design process
    and subsequently summarize the pros and cons of the application
    and the smartphone platform and how the app developed
    contributes to vocational mathematics teaching"
