App of the Week | ModMath

ModMath is an app that was developed for students with dysgraphia and dyslexia. ModMath allows the user to type out math problems on the touch screen, decreasing the need to use paper and pencil to complete math problems. As one of the reviewers on iTunes stated, this is a visual organizer, not a calculator.

What ModMath does:

  • Provides a virtual piece of graph paper, allowing students to legibly line up numbers and equations
  • The size of the graph paper can be customized, as can the color of the worksheet (either dark print on light paper or light on dark)
  • Rows and columns can be shaded to assist with alignment
  • Allows students to do basic math problems (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) using a touch screen, rather than writing
  • Pages can be printed or emailed directly to a teacher

Here are some screenshots of me doing a division problem:

Use the onscreen number pad to type out the problem.

Adjust the size of the graph paper as you like or highlight a column to assist with alignment.

 Show your work without picking up a pencil!
