There are many websites that offer worksheets, apps, games, and manipulatives to help students through their struggles with mathematics. When an educator is trying to strengthen the skills of a particular student, finding the precise activity to use is very challenging. MathAPPtitude contains a range of building blocks that educators can use to design apps, which include simple activities such as counting, basic arithmetic, working with money, and multiplication. MathAPPtitude is expanding to include more complicated activities such as factoring polynomials, trigonometric verifications, and derivatives.
