Quantitative methods provide an essential tool of analysis in virtually all branches in economics, including also Public Economics. The analysis of public policies, their effectiveness and their efficiency is of special relevance, and therefore, an element that must be transferred also to the classroom. The subject Quantitative Methods taught in the degrees of Economics, Finance and Accounting and Business Management of the Universitat Jaume I has a remarkable practical component, which includes exercises in the branch of Public Economics, among others. This paper describes the implementation of mobile learning methods in the class. In particular, students competition in class using the Socrative platform. The results suggest improvements in the acquisition of knowledge and in the participation of the students in lessons, as well as a high rate of acceptance and satisfaction among students.
