Abstract

There is an increasing trend towards the use of mobile games in education. Presenting knowledge with mobile games requires many variables to be employed. These processes should be made more rigorous in domains such as mathematics where knowledge is abstract. The aim of this study is to develop an application to introduce the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic through a mobile game. The findings of the research show that the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic can be introduced with the developed mobile game. When the mobile game is evaluated in terms of mathematical knowledge, it is determined that while the constraints and conditions determined in the game hide the mathematical knowledge. In this sense, some game examples are given in this study and some models related to feedbacks that students can take in these games are presented.
