The games were implemented in a class of the 12th year of Mathematics in a Portuguese public school with 20 students, 10 boys and 10 girls, aged between 16 and 18. After taught the chapter on integrals and integral calculus in a context of distance learning (given the pandemic COVID-19), using the Teams platform, supported by a PowerPoint with theoretical explanation of the contents and some examples. Students did exercises from the workbook as usual and after that, the original computer learning games were implemented.

This study has shown that the use of these games had a positive impact in the students’ basic integral calculus ability. This kind of approach stimulates student to perceive the structures of the basic integrals, allowing them to achieve better results in this kind of calculation. The students found the use of these games useful to practice and consolidate their knowledge.
