Since I played the super spin game in Chuck E. Cheese I planed to come up with an educational game. I brainstorm to make a good game. I started to play with the spin and numbers and finally I decided that I will teach children to find the factors of a number through this game. Here is my mock up of the game in the video. I will have candy instead of pasta on the day of our arcade. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyDscJP6Z0E[/youtube]
As I said in the video that I will ask them to divide the candies between different number of people, I will ask them to start with the lowest number which is 1 and they will go by 1,2,3,4…. until they have all the factors. They will stop if the numbers start to repeat. and they will be given paper bowl to distribute the candies so that they can do it easily. I hope this will work.
I played this game with my sister and brother several time and they said that students will learn all the factors of a number by playing this game. At the end of the game the player will get the same amount of candy.
I would love to hear some feedback from my peers and professor. I am still thinking how can I make this game more fun. I want to teach all the factors through this game; not the prime factors or the proper factors. What should I do to make it better? please comment and give me suggestion.
