Traditional teaching strategies have become increasingly unattractive and demotivating for students in general. Students of inorganic chemistry usually have difficulties in learning the atomicity of the elements during the composition of the chemical compounds, as well as in the understanding of the characteristics and functions of such compounds. This work presents Quimi-Crush, a tile-matching digital puzzle capable of stimulating students to learn and participate in the understanding of inorganic chemistry concepts in a playful and fun way.
