Project: Mathematica helps kids with the challenges they face in mathematics. It was founded on a student-to-student model: it is written by a student and made for students. Therefore, it uses language that is easy for students to understand.
It provides a collection of topics in Algebra/Geometry available via the website and through iOS/Android apps. It features a problem of the week section that provides an interactive way to review concepts and a feedback section for questions. I created this app in 7th grade and it has been in use successfully for more than two years.
I used Wix for website development and Ionic for the app UI. The Android app was built with MIT AppInventor and iOS app with Xcode and Swift. The app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
In conjunction with the app I also offer regular tutoring sessions at the library for middle/high schoolers in my and neighboring school districts. My math teacher uses this project as a supplement to class materials. My project has been featured in The Somers Record town newspaper. My website has received more than 3900 views with multiple positive feedbacks.
I am proud to say that I am making a difference in my community and the students struggling in math are using my project to make real progress in their learning! My goal is to grow this project across a multitude of math topics that I will learn in high school and beyond.
