Math Paper has been defined as an excellent solution for “doing math without a pencil”. This iPad app follows Universal design of Learning and can be used independently by anyone, including individuals with motor challenges or cognitive processing issues. Math Paper offers the foundations to learn simple arithmetic, and the power to do complicated equations.
The innovative support features like accessible controls, predictive cursors, baseline navigation, keyboard sounds, email and more make it easy for physically challenged students to write everything from basic numbers to complex algebra at their own pace. Grid-based interface and fixed horizontal keypad that provides access, even if a finger does not move from the bottom of a horizontal iPad, users will have much greater ability to partake in the cognitive processes that allow the development of math skills. Hold Times adjusts the time a button must be pressed before it activates. This is to help avoid miss-hits for users with fine motor challenges.
- Accessible Controls offers easy access to settings, file management, and other app functions.
Predictive Cursor automatically moves the cursor to where it is likely to be needed next.
Baseline Navigation allows the user to navigate a page by touching only near the bottom of the grid.
Keyboard Sounds provide audio feedback.
