Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) launched a web and mobile mathematics apps that enable students to further adjust to the online or distance learning amid the new normal amid the ongoing pandemic.
Mathplus apps intended to provide an immersive teaching guide within the digital space for students to learn mathematics and encourage them to think critically in solving equations. The applications are free that runs on moderate system requirements in laptops, smartphones, and other devices.
Its resource team compromises of ADMU mathematicians, mathematics educators, and software developers spearheaded by Dr. Ma. Louise Antonette N. De Las Peñas, a Professor at the Department of Mathematics and the associate dean for Research and Creative Work of Loyola Schools
The development of these applications are under the project “Technology Innovations for Mathematical Reasoning, Statistical Thinking and Assessment” funded by the Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD).
“We are confident that this project can help students to manage their learning, monitor their progress, think creatively and critically, and solve real-life problems,” said DOST-PCIEERD executive director Dr. Enrico C. Paringit.
