Math Tutor: An Interactive Android-Based Numeracy Application for Primary Education

Masood, Z., Hoda, R.

    With growing exposure of children to handheld and mobile devices, there is an increasing interest in exploring the use of mobile technology for educational purposes. In particular, touch-based devices seem to promise great potential in this domain. In this paper, we present Math Tutor - an Android-based application designed to help children learn and practice early numeracy addition and subtraction (take away) as well as help teachers monitor and review children's progress, with support for English and Maori languages. We describe the design and development process, features of the application, and the results of a usability evaluation. This project takes a step towards creating interactive platforms required for educating the upcoming generation of digital natives.
