Maths Makes Sense iOS app


We wanted to extend the reach of our Maths Makes Sense tool, which provides children with a solid foundation in maths.


Challenge

Already available on its website, OUP asked the Oculus digital team to design, develop and build versions of its Maths Makes Sense tool – initially optimised for iPhones and iPads but with the facility for rolling out to other devices in the future. The new tools were to be heavy in videos and documents, so usability was key.

Solution

We built the tools using Appcelerator, a leading mobile platform, so it’s simple to pick them apart and reuse the components should OUP decide to develop versions for non-iOS devices. The apps tick all the boxes… they look good and we designed new icons to simplify navigation. For speed, we embedded the eight large videos – a definite plus for educational settings.
