Abstract

Mobile MathTactics is a mobile game-based application inspired to teach children on the subject of mathematics. Mathematics is a very interesting field as it can explain many of evidence to us through calculations and numbers. However, because it is too complex for a normal person to understand it, especially young kids, mathematics might draw “sour grapes” on their faces. Apart from that, the inefficient teachings models adopted by the academic educators have also worsened the case to even severe that what it already is. Lack of narration and meaning behind those numbers frightened people away from learning mathematics. Therefore to counter the problems, the author has come up with the idea of using games as the learning tool to capture the interest of small children. Games, for centuries (since the beginning of personal computer era) have renowned for its enjoyable and fun environment. Thus, by applying the same concept to the subject mathematics, the education industry can improves itself through a whole new teaching method. Moreover, it uses English language as the medium of interaction with the user apart leveraging the mobile technology as its core platform. The application focuses on three mathematical modules, which are addition, subtraction and lastly multiplication. The whole project is done with Rapid Application Development methodology, as it is much flexible and suitable for the short duration of development. After developed the simulator of the application, the prototype was tested with ten students. The final conclusion is that Mobile MathTactics is able to meet its objectives although improvements are still needed for better future commercial option.
