Abstract: The Candy Factory, an app developed for the iOS platform targeting iPads, is an educational game intended to prepare middle school students for algebra-readiness. The Candy Factory differs from existing educational games along three dimensions: 1) the app is designed following evidence-based theories of cognition and engagement; 2) the app scaffolds learners to approach fractions with deep understanding; and 3) the app leverages game mechanics and device hardware for formative assessment purposes.
