Mathematics is a very important learning subject. Mathematical knowledge can be learned by traditional or distance learning, but the mathematical problem solving ability is hard to improve without experiences through practice. Therefore, developing an interesting learning game to enhance students problem solving ability is the major concern in this paper. Since the storytelling strategy has been proved to be useful to enhance the students thinking ability, we develop a storytelling-based arithmetic card game to encourage and guide students to speak out their thinking process of problem solving, where the e-Project-Based Learning (e-PBL) platform has been applied to brainstorm the characteristics of the game and construct the storytelling script. Thus, the misconceptions can be easily diagnosed. To evaluate the performance of our approach, 40 5-grade primary school students have participated in the storytelling-based arithmetic card game experiment. The experimental result shows that the storytelling-based learning can enhance the mathematical problem solving ability via playing the game.
