Abstract

Arithmetic is the oldest branch of Mathematics which consists the study of numbers, specifically the properties of the basic traditional operations. According to a previous study, most of the users agree that Mathematics is considered as a difficult subject and there is a lack of enjoyment in practicing arithmetic drills. Therefore, this research has developed a racing game named Need for Speed Arithmetic for an enjoyable arithmetic drills experience. The racing game has implemented the Rapid Application Development (RAD) approach as it provided a stable and fast development process which is appropriate in developing the game. In this present study, the focus is on the evaluation of player enjoyment in game-based learning arithmetic drills. The evaluation scale adapted is based on EGameFlow Model which consists of seven dimensions: Immersion, challenge, goal clarity, feedback, concentration, control, and knowledge improvement. The social interaction dimension is excluded because the game is implemented on a standalone platform. The study findings indicate that the combination of gaming element with arithmetic drills in the Mathematics subject provide a sense of enjoyment to students in learning Mathematics through drill activities.
