Abstract

We have been designing mobile apps to help children build their mathematical understanding. Our goal is to create a comprehensive collection of free apps to support mathematics learning at the elementary and middle school levels. We see mobile touch devices as providing a direct and very useful interface that can support children in playing with, exploring and understanding mathematics. We want to help parents and teachers help children to learn mathematics and we believe that the best way we can accomplish this is by creating simple easy-to-use applications, incorporating educationally sound models into the apps, and providing mechanisms to observe progress. To ensure their educational utility, visual models are integrated into each of the MathTappers apps to help children capture and make sense of the math they are learning.
