Abstract

In this paper we describe a pedagogical interactive activity currently in development, which takes the form of a mobile game. The subject of the game is a curriculum topic in mathematics, namely the four elementary operations on polynomials. The design options considered emerged from previous work of the authors, specifically a survey on the gaming preferences of students and the study of the favourite games of the students. We describe the main results of this work and how it has contributed to the creation of the game.
