Of course, we’re not saying you can’t learn from game based apps - Tynker, Hopscotch, ScratchJr, and Hakitzu are fine examples of teaching children how to code, but we felt as though there was a real gap in providing teachers with a solid resource that not only tracks the progress of their students, but at the same time is fully aligned to the National Curriculum.
The app was launched only just a few months ago, and the feedback we have received from teachers in Primary schools so far has been overwhelming. And in even more exciting news, Maths Tutor has also been short-listed for the prestigious BETT Awards in January 2016 – something we’ll definitely be keeping our fingers and toes crossed for!
As we work alongside teachers so often, we wanted to help by developing an app that could be easily accessed by teachers to teach key maths curriculum topics to their students. One of the key features of Maths Tutor is its cross-platform functionality. This means that one user (either a student or teacher) is able to log in on an iPad, Android device, Computer or jump in front of the class on the Interactive whiteboard and get stuck in.
Having this flexibility has brought something very unique to the app market, because teachers are able to use the app in the classroom and then set tasks for homework in preparation for the next day’s lesson.
However, as with any resource you use in the classroom, you’d want to check the progress of your class and hope that it provides measurable and quantifiable results. Maths Tutor does just that and can even identify key strengths and weaknesses of each student alongside the curriculum requirements.
Maths Tutor Topics include:
- Problem Solving
- Converting Fractions, Decimals & Percentages
