Fractions is one concept in Mathematics students struggle with. With the high usage of digital devices such as tablets and I-phones, Augmented Reality can be used to provide a rich adaptive education environment to young players. I am thinking of a Pokemon-like creature who inhabits another planet and comes to Earth to join the player in his real environment as the player's new friend. This creature is not only a friend that can accompany the player everywhere but also has an important pedagogical role that helps the player to learn according to his/her pace through building a learner model for the player and provides challenges tailored to the player's current skills, in addition to presenting new concepts to the player based on his current learner model. The challenges/tasks should be all part of a background story with no actual mathematical formulas or equations provided in the game. The goal is to help the player understand and manipulate fractions.
