Transcript of EPQ Maths App
1. I didn't know how to code
2. Learning to code took a lot longer than expected
3. Broken code
4. Developers License
Testing early stages of app
If I did it again..
BY RACHEL WHALLEY
Final result successful
Underestimated skills need
Underestimated amount of work required
Gap in market for this type of product
Need for tool to help 10-12 year olds
What I learnt...
Coding is difficult
New set of skills
Need to fully understand a project before embarking on it
Testing and refining product takes time
Importance of research
researching for initial idea
begin creating bases of app
have fully working app
research design options
aesthetics of the app
font, colour, layout etc.
I love maths
17 million adults in the UK have the maths skills of a year 6 pupil - 49%
1/4 of pupils fail to reach the expected level 4 in maths
Children criticised for being 'over reliant on calculators'
Essential skill in life
App to use on smartphones
Incorporate basic math functions: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
Targeted at 11/12 year olds, but accessible to all age ranges
research into the main issues
test what's already out there
learn the skills essential to code
build/create my own app
test against the target audience
evaluating the app
altering any changes needed
repeat, repeat, repeat.
finish final App
begin write up of evaluation of project
free, upgrade for £1.49
adverts for other games
in app purchase option
mixed reviews from 2012
automatically set difficulty to hard, tricky to change
"..extend their understanding of the number system and place value to include larger integers. This should develop the connections that pupils make between multiplication and division with fractions, decimals, percentages and ratios."
"..consolidate their numerical and mathematical capability from KS2 and extend their understanding of the number system; make connections between number relationships."
Solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
MEETINGS WITH PROFESSIONALS
"Great idea! Lots of primary schools now using iPads in lessons, and most of the children are well acquainted with them."
Acting Head of Maths
"I see a lot of new year seven pupils initially struggle with the step up from primary school. If successful, the app would allow them to practice key skills at home.."
"From a professional opinion, I believe it would be best for you and your restraints to create an app rather than a website.."
Gain a better expertise at coding before beginning such a big project
How likely do you believe it is that a student would use this app?
